Default Coyote in Dallas..

Wife has to work on the weekends sometimes. She's headed downtown this morning and shoots me this picture in a text. Says, 'thought it was a coyote but it looked small..' Right off the highway on Hall St. in the field next to the Starbucks. These guys are amazing.

My office is off of Hall and I have seen multiple gray fox there in the cemetery. I have not seen a coyote there but did see a dead one about two exits up at Knox. Pretty crazy when you think about it. What’s more impressive is that your wife recognized that it was coyote. Mine would have been trying to help the poor puppy.

No Joke! My wife would have chased it with dog food!

Watched a show on Animal Planet a couple weeks ago that was talking about coyotes and how adaptive they are. They can learn go live pretty much anywhere. It was a pretty interesting show. They are smart. There's no doubt about that.

Got more information from her - she said it was kind of 'hobbling' and she was a little stressed about it because it was loping toward a building that people were actively leaving with dogs and kids. I told her there's not a lot of danger there, but good heads up.

We live in east Dallas (lakewood/Hollywood heights area) and we see coyotes and bobcats a lot around the golf course and around white rock lake. My wife and inused to live in uptown about 10yrs ago near the cemetery and would see grey foxes, coyotes and raccoons all the time over there. The ones around Lakewood and Tennison golf courses are big and healthy.

They can adapt no doubt. I live in Lewisville and between by house and 35 there is a big field with several coyotes and foxes. They’re healthy too!

I have a pack that lives across the street, here in Arlington, right by the elementary school. At night, you can see or hear them chasing something, probably one of the many loose cats, in the playground.

I’m on the north side of white rock lake. There’s more than a handful of coyotes that live in the greenbelt that runs with white rock creek and around flagpole Hill. They are in our hood daily taking care of the cats and rats. Our neighborhood Facebook page is full of nervous nellies posting “warnings” when they spot one. Someone got a good shot of a yote with mange during broad daylight a few years ago. Another has a good security cam video of a bobcat in their driveway.

Saw one walking down a sidewalk in Liberal,Kansas a few weeks ago. I saw it cross the road and automatically knew by the way it was walking it wasn't no regular dog. He just stopped and watched me drive by like it was no big deal.lol
