Imagine my surprise, while walking Jack the Dog in a wild area close to my condo, to turn for an unknown reason and discover a coyote following us closely behind. Jack is very well fed and would make a tasty meal. I began walking backwards and the coyote continued to follow. I looked for a large stick or rock but nothing substantial was close. We kept walking and reaching a trail intersection, hung a right toward my complex. The coyote too turned right but now, while paralleling us, was farther away and I took the above image. Kind of creepy but once we reached a road, the coyote walked away. Then.....
....we made it back and Jack did what he does best, other than eating, slept for awhile.
