Turkey Trouble

Our resident turkeys were grateful for my "outhouse trek" interruption earlier this morning.

A lone coyote was making a selection as I interceded, merely with my presence.

I watched the long-legged intruder for several minutes, in the 27 degree temp, sans coat.

I love watching Canis Latrans move...their gate...their confidence.

He respected me and ditched his efforts.

He and I exchanged glances as he slipped into the pines to the north.




Good way to start the day...saving a life or two.

Am so glad the coyote was deterred before chomping down on your turkey.

That's pretty scary! We have coyotes, too, here in southern Ontario. Maybe you could start carrying a big stick with you to the outhouse! So glad everything turned out okay--the turkeys have lived to see another day ~smile~.
