A friend clued me in on some coyote activity at a nearby open space area recently. While coyotes are routinely seen there, this particular female had an interesting little routine.
Apparently every morning she meets a particular couple with three dogs that walks along the South Platte River. As they walk through the open space, the coyote follows along, barking the whole way.
I arrived right at dawn and sure enough, I soon heard barking and as the walkers approached, I could see they were being followed by this very vocal hound. The coyote was completely non-aggressive and it really appeared she simply wanted the dogs to come play with her.
Clouds kept the early light dim and made for tough shooting but it was a lot of fun to watch.
