    Great pics again.   :thumbup  Yup - cholla is nasty stuff.  You never forget the first time you come away with one of those clumps stuck to you - and in you.   :shocked

    Shoot the Dancing Coyote

    We live in what was rural, now more semi-rural area.

    The coyotes are thick every night, in the wash to the west.

    And the 'missing dog' signs with pictures of 30 lb. house dogs appear shortly after each moving truck is seen in the area.

    Our place has fences and free running dogs. The smallest is a 70 lb. Doberman who is just starting to show his age. (The others are Danes, each well over 100 lbs.)

    The last few nights shortly after sunset one coyote appears outside the fence. It dances and plays and flirts with the Dobie, who is not having anything to do with it, yet.

    But if you look closely with a flashlight you see many pairs of extra eyes in the bushes behind the dancing coyote.

    The honey-pot is not a new trick - nor is it limited to humankind.

    The scary part is just how smart the coyotes are.

    Tonight the pellet gun comes out. And with luck the dancing coyote will dance no more. They are smart and they learn.

    And yes, this is a metaphor too. Something like - 'look behind the dancing distraction, and ask why is it dancing for me?'

    The game camera has been aligned - I'm anxious to see what happens and will post anything captured.

    (I am more than happy to share with the wildlife in my area - but the jig is up on this group at our place. It is time for the pack to be reminded who the real top of the food chain is.)

    Great pics - as usual.  Timing is indeed the key.   ;-) 

    We live near a fairly major wash that comes out of South Mountain Park and if you are out just before daybreak or just after sundown there are times it looks like a coyote freeway.  There seems to be two separate packs that frequent the area but as you say, the incidence of "missing" pets is pretty high at times. 

    Cats seem to be a favorite target around here as people let them out to roam around the neighborhood and eventually they just never come back.  One got snapped up in the street a block away from us in full view of the neighbor who had the front door open and was calling the unfortunate creature. A pair of them converged and kitty zigged when she should have zagged and that was the end of that.  The poor neighbor lady was completely freaked out by the speed and violence of the attack but it was something she should have seen coming as she acknowledged seeing coyotes ( maybe the same pair ) wandering around in the mornings when it was time for the cat to come in for the day but never thought they could catch her cat out in the open just twenty yards or so from her front door.  Whoops.

    Between the coyotes and the javelina knocking over the big trash bins and scattering trash everywhere as they root through it for tasty tidbits we are constantly "entertained".   :facepalm   Doesn't take too long to learn you don't put the trash bins out the night before pick-up.   :yes

    Well said Coel.  Those guys don't stand much of a chance outside.

    Not a trail cam but it was a cam on the trail.
    I saw my first wild Gila monster the other day

     Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose.

    I’m hearing that it is pretty rare to see them.
    33 years in the desert never seeing one... almost squashed him with the truck
