Check out the coat on this coyote, captured on “film” in the Riner area.
That thing sure still has a pretty coat on him!

the only way he would look better would be if there was a big red hole just under his ear.
From the lights in the background that coyote is pretty close to the human population.
FOLKS IN THAT AREA BEST BE AWARE THAT COYOTES LOVE TO EAT CATS AND SMALL DOGS. I WILL GO OUT OF MY WAY TO KILL EVERY ONE OF THEM THAT I CAN.
“Would look better if there was a big red hole just under his ear” – yeah, that sounds like Roanoke. Yeah, we love our wildlife – dead! Crikey, y’all, you don’t want to live in a “big city” because you get to see and hear all this great wildlife; why on earth are you so eager to kill it?!
I don’t live in Roanoke garc, and I kill every coyote I have the chance to kill. They are a non-native, destructive pest. No apologies.
In Kansas we were covered up with those things. I heard of them tearing into dog kennels just to get the food and killing the dogs. Definitely NOT the majestic wolf, if the Blue Ridge were the African Savanna, the coyote would be the hyena.

While growing up in rural Southern Oregon, Mark Taylor
developed a passion for the outdoors while he and his younger brother tagged along with their father on fishing,
hunting and camping adventures.
Graduating from Northwestern University in 1988, Taylor spent four years as an officer in the U.S. Navy based
in Norfolk before moving into journalism.
After five years writing about the military for a Norfolk-based publishing company, he became the outdoors
editor at The Roanoke Times in 1998. He lives in Roanoke with his wife and twin daughters.
