Back in the coyote days..

Posted in

This is a look back to February 2012, when coyotes were plentiful at the Ridgefield NWR.  An early morning breakfast for this coyote.  Over the past few years, the refuge has all but exterminated the coyotes to ensure the survival and proliferation of the Columbian White-tailed Deer population. While I value all wildlife, it’s too bad that coyotes had to lose out in the deal to save these deer. From a photography viewpoint (and in my opinion), the coyotes have a greater potential to provide interesting shots than do the deer.  Hopefully, once the deer reach an adequate population, the coyotes will be allowed to return to the refuge.
