OPPS MY BAD....DIDN'T REALIZE I WAS SUPPOSED TO SCROLL STILL PHOTO'S.....
GREAT PICTURE TAKEN AND THE LAST PIC OF THE TWO OLD BOYS ...PRICELESS
WHY DIDN'T I GET A CHANCE TO SEE THE VIDEO...GEESH
Get an Airdale or a Plotz, They know what to do with a yote.
That lab may not have had a chance but get a german shepherd in there and the coyote's in trouble. We've had german shepherds on our farm regularly take on entire an entire pack of coyotes and will normally finish off 2-3 before the rest of them wise up. A healthy german shepherd can run down a coyote and once they get some experience at it will make short work of Wiley.
Some people have all the ignorance,Gojira! If you even did your own research or IN the field about coyotes, wolves, oh yeah and coyote self-imposed birth control (?) instead of repeating what a college grad who read a book about it from some other misinformed and assuming wildlife disney feature claims, you'd have a lot better facts. I'm married to and have lived with a coyote hunter for 22 years who works for (USDA APHIS Wildife Services), and your knowledge is way off guard for the truth. It was almost comical reading your comment. Almost! sheesh!
Um, folks, this is a completely typical scenario. Most coyotes will run from most dogs (unless the dogs are bite-sized). BTW wolves kill very few coyotes, because coyotes tend to steer clear of wolf territories, but your tax dollars kill over 70,000 coyotes per year (USDA APHIS Wildife Services) and hunters may kill about the same number. In fact, coyote biologists tell us that there are now MORE coyotes due to predator control because the ones that get shot, poisoned, etc are usually the territorial alpha adults that used to control population density by keeping the others from breeding. The west's craftiest and deadliest predator? Piffle. That's Joe Sixpack with a 4x4, a rifle and a weekend.
It was crazy to see how close the coyote allowed the people on the bikes to get to it. Kinda scary
Great Job with the camera and great dogs. I was also wondering what happened to the other dog?
We need more good dogs. What happened to the lab's buddy when he caught up to the Yote? Coyotes cause more fawn deaths each year than any other cause. Hunters would really do deer herds a great service if they hunted Yotes in the spring months of April, May and June after they've welped their pups and deer are beginning to drop their fawns. We'd see far more deer around than we do now. Coyotes adapt to any enviroment. California folks, you need to snuff a bunch out!
I had an old female pit...my kids were goin down to the pond to fish and the rule was always.."take the dog" ..a coyote was stalking a fawn...kids got in between...the dog protected the kids...bad day for the coyote! who said pits were bad...Wiley E. Coyote maybe!
My little chocalate has so much energy I wish sometime's I could break a wee bit of that spirit so she won't go off half cocked, it'll make her a good duck dog though ,this ''yellow'' wouldn't stand a chance even if it did catch it too fat too out of shape coyote's are one tough customer ,there's too many but man are they an unbeleivable animal,best ''chase'' would be with a 22.250
we had a black lab who did the same thing. we were walking in the creek beds and this coyote was sitting there drinking from a puddle. when it saw us the coyote darted right past us and our lab just jumped on um. grabbed the thing by the throat an drowned it. that dog was the best dog we've ever had. i was little when this happened but ill never forget it.
Great photos wish the dogs would've caught ole wily coyote.
Very good photos of the action.
awesome job on the camera........and kudos to the dogs as well!
Great story and even better photos! Nice job Alek.
good job yeller!
Dont worry about coyotes much, wolves kill most of them.
Photographer Alek Komarnitsky spotted this coyote while out on a walk with his son near Lafayette, Colorado.
