Monday Monday Wake Up Call-The Big Bad Wolf?




Mr. Jackson came across this find on one of our hikes in Bandelier. He saw a white reflection and thinking that it was a plastic bag, he ventured off the trail to pick it up. When I finally caught up (more on that later), he could hardly contain his excitement!! Isn't this cool?, he said. Through gasps, I agreed and promptly began to take a few shots to memorialize the moment, reminding him that we needed to leave his new friend where he found him. Being an excellent hiker, he returned Wolfy back to the wilderness.

We stopped back at the ranger's station to advise them of our find. Amazingly, we were advised that there no wolves in Bandelier and that Wolfy was more likely Wiley, a coyote. Go figure. That was one big coyote! Happy trails and may your week be a great adventure!

Hi! My dog Scoby, he was a mix of dog and coyote. Great post!, interesting song.

A coyote that size will do more than nip at your heels.

authority figures are wrong sometimes...especially when they give quick responses off the top of their heads. It could like been like Romulo's response big dog and coyote breed. Animals are on the move now and where we never saw certain species before they are now showing up. Either way -- that was one big jaw bone, glad you snapped the photo.
