Re: black coyote
Nice yote. I have never seen one black like that, live. My neighbor down the street got a double this week, one "normal" looking one, and one black as coal. It was a pretty impressive critter.
I rarely see the really light or really dark ones myself. I finally shot a very light colored one this year, and the hide wasn't salvageable due to bullet holes. Ugh! I don't have the luck I guess.
Congrats- I hope he ends up a rug. Shame to let a unique one like that go away.
