i saw a coyote

Recommended Posts

Just did my 2 mile run and he was going the opposite direction. I think he was fighting something bc I heard some scary noises in the direction he came from and he was runnin real fast and distracted. He ran right past me he was so close but didnt even notice til he was right up on me then looked at me and changed course

That happens when I run late at night the aminals are used to running the show at that time. I saw a pack of 4 feral dogs in street ahead of me once. One spotted me and ruffed to alert the others and they ran away. That was actually scary bc they were pretty big all 4 couldve probably killed me if I couldnt climb up onto a car in time. One time I got chased by a random dog that may or may not be a stray. That was in akron tho

pretty common in my area there's seldom out so a person can see him but once in a while it's quite a treat to see them if you can

I liked that they ran off just bc a random human was approaching. And not only since it meant I wasnt gonna die. But like they know they cant trust anyone if they wanna stay free. I like that

Ooh, frightening. I know the feel. I didn't know Nebraska had coyotes until I walked from Lincoln to Omaha. I heard them awoo-ing and I was like, "I'm fixin' to die out here in the middle of nowhere." It was scary.

Meh, used to see wolves walking home at night in MS....I assume the will fuck with you if hungry but my own personal experience says if you don't fuck with them, they have no interest in humans.

coyotes are pretty much scavengers, so they're not dumb enough to take on a hooman. i've seen them pack up and take down calves, but they usually know their limits and avoid anything beyond that.

unless they're sick, then all bets are off.

You should probably carry an aerosol animal deterrent.  Just be upwind if you use one.

I know I'm not worried about coyotes theres not many full grown adult coyote fatalities out there

It was unusual to see one here anyway. He was probably fighting a fat raccoon

I think that means you're worthy of leading the tribe now. Don't quote me on that tho.

Since you have 'yotes, you could also carry a bottle of "Doe in heat" to throw on humans.  That would make the coyotes chase them.  [insert evil laugh]

Well, I expect you to, knowing that you run late like that. Doesn’t surprise me. It would surprise me if said coyote was a drunk driving.

Theres not many other humans out at the times I usually run. I like not dodging cars and the quiet peacefulness. I dont even listen to music which i always do when i workout indoors
