[RC] coyote threat - rides2far

    > cyotes or cyote dog hybrids
    > very hard to find actual cyotes anymore

I read a book about the Eastern Coyotes...they are *all* bigger. The
author's theory is that there's a tad of wolf that mixed in at some point
and they are filling the void left by the Red Wolf in the Eastern
forests..nature fills a void with the sized creature it had adapted for
the job. Forget the details but it was pretty persuading argument. The
ones I've seen were very consistent...and very shy. Saw 3 pups on the
trail at Biltmore the night before the ride last year...have seen one
within 20 yards of my back door. It was chasing my Australian Shepherd
home but when my dog saw me on my horse she seemed to think
*reinforcements!* and turned and chased it back over the ridge.

Angie (headed out to pick up my new 7 year old barely halter broke
stallion this morning...details pending!)
