Tonight's "mission coyote pup" was over before it got started. Dad stopped by to give us a dirty look and kept the little ones in the woods.
I don't know if the adults' wolf-like appearance and bearing comes through in the pictures. They act as if they own the place, which I suppose they do now. They're smaller than wolves, of course, but "coywolf" really does capture their essence better than "eastern coyote."

The whole family was basking in the warm sun this afternoon. Here's Dad, looking less scraggly than he did in the spring. All those yummy deer, I guess. Mom and the two cubs also looked to be in excellent health.
