Coyote in the limelight June 10, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — bisonquest @ 9:40 am

I just went and picked up the remote camera yesterday.  One of our chickens had died (no, not TDC) during the winter and I had placed it down in one of our forested drainages to see what would come to it.  Well, we got lots of curious deer – most of whom are recognizable as the deer who frequent our yard – and one coyote in the limelight (or flash in this case)!

    Interesting to see the deer there. Once last year while on an early morning drive to our closest larger city, my friend and I saw a deer that had been killed by a train. A bear that had likely visited the site about 5 – 10 min earlier was making a hasty retreat off into the woods again, and there with the carcass was another deer and a pheasant. Why are deer so interested in carcasses?

    Well, in the case of your dead deer, it was probably because the dead deer was someone that the live deer knew. With the chicken, I suspect it was simply because it was out of the ordinary, and therefore was something that deer, as well as many wild critters, would want to check out.
