Wile. E. Coyote - In Our Back Yard

No, we don't have a photo to prove it but Brian looked out the kitchen windows around 7:00 a.m. just as a coyote was trotting briskly across the back yard above our path down to the lake.

The animal was a little larger than he would have thought, about the size of a medium German Shepherd, but with longer legs and a skinnier body.

There are apparently quite a few coyotes who hang around here. We've spotted them twice before but we've never seen one in our yard before.

The Birch Bay Village Manager mentioned in his most recent newsletter that a cougar had been spotted in the Village.

We'd be just as happy if the wildlife around here doesn't get any more wild than raccoons.

Yikes! I hope he's a gentle one. Too bad gated communities don't keep out scary animals.
