Brian has a question for the barflies:
Do you suppose this dog is a coyote? This picture was snapped today (by a colleague), just outside our office. She (he?) has scared away the geese that flock to the water retention pond — which is a very good thing!
Based on the photographic evidence…
…I’d say, “Almost certainly.” And a pretty healthy one, from the looks of it.
(Which reminds me of the stupidest local-TV report I’ve ever seen, which will probably remain so until I watch TV again, in which a reporter did a breathless report on a coyote captured in downtown Detroit. It came from “the wild,” the reporter said, and would be released there as well. What. A. Moron.)
