    Hi Sabrina, yes he was...it's sad to see him dead, but I still find it facinating to get a look at such a cool forest creature

    sad. beautiful animal.

    I've been close to a coyote twice recently (well, not forestgnome close!, but close!). They are beautiful creatures.
    Also found a fox skull in the woods on Friday in Haverhill, NH.

    dead coyote pix

    OK- not sure why this is needed. I'd much rather see a photo of a live animal. I have a photo of a dead cat- anyone want to see?

    We can start a whole new thing- dead animals on line- oh wait they have that already. Where is that spring wildflower thread...

    I kind of agree with you. However, at least the picture is not directly on the page - it must be clicked on, if that's any consolation!!! There have also been other pictures of dead animals in other posts that haven't posted warnings ahead of time, so, at least this said "dead" in the title....

    I felt bad looking at the picture but curiosity got the better of me, so, I had to click on it!!!!

    Also, I've occasionally posted some gross things in my posts probably unintentionally grossing people out!!!

    Many folks have never seen a coyote live or dead, so this could be a very helpful ID photo...I have also seen a "gray fox" road kill in NH before, and seen one or two in the flesh, and it was really difficult to tell them apart until I happened to be seeing many more coyote...and good luck catching a photo of a live coyote, but I can look out my window and take a photo of the neighbor's calico....

    I've never seen one before (beautiful animal) but I have heard them, or at least that's what I think. One night my wife and I were in bed and a large number or pack of them crossed our back yard. Boy were they noisy, and scary. The noises they made were something straight out of hell, or so it seemed. And so close. It really gave us the creeps. Oddly enough, I think I heard the same thing this weekend, from the summit of Mt. Passaconaway at around noon. In the bowl northwest of the summit, somewhere out there in the woods, I heard the same exact noises albeit at a greater distance. Again it sounded like a whole pack of animals.

    No love lost here, 45 lb rats in my book. Both my wife and I have been within 20' of them in our back yard, closer on local trails and golf course. Our old dog contracted "fox mites" (mange) from them. Missing Dog/Cat signs are ubiquitous. Neighbor's invisible fenced dog was just killed by one. I'm sure they'd happily invite our new puppy to dinner, if given the chance. Road kill is common. Rabies is a potential. I guess we're spoiled.

    I for one am interested in seeing and tracking animals so this pic is interesting and not the least bit offensive to me. It DID have a disclaimer :-)


    Back OT, this guy/gal looks more representative of coyote than red wolf lineage, relative to other coyotes (dead or alive) I've seen. There seems to be a strong population of both in the Whites.

    ...Well, first, we share our forest experiences, which includes wildlife such as coyote, because we want to. Your dead cat photo would not be relevent to this forum.

    Second, you didn't have to click the link. The post title indicates the coyote is dead, so you didn't even "need" to click on the thread, let alone the image.

    Third, naturalists learn alot more about wildlife from dead animals than from live ones.

    Hopefully, this will sooth your hurt feelings...from the Gulf of Slides






    WARNING!!!!! the next photo is may offend some!!!!! Warning!!!

    Thank you forestgnome bro! Awsome pics as always.I try often to get animal pics,including spending days trying to get the good shot.Two weeks ago,I got the drop on a woodpecker but had no camera on me.Next three days,he would not let me within 200 yards.I also recently tried to get some pics of some wild turkeys who wandered up to my "camp' by accident.I followed them very aggressively to a open clearing where they got pissed and flew off.I was laughing so hard because I do not remember ever seeing one fly off.It was like a cartoon watching this huge bird try to take off,it would go up 10 feet and then down 5 feet before gaining slight altitude.The whole time it was yelling at me.I am amazed at the shots you get.
    These pics you put up of the coyote are VERY important here in the northeast.They are all over the general area now and could shift the balance of the environs they share with other animals in a negative manner.

    Or a positive way. It isn't a terrible thing to have something besides cars and hunters to keep the deer population in check. Deer negatively affect the rate of regeneration of hardwoods in areas where they browse heavily, which is a problem for folks who are trying to manage their forest for timber. Especially with numbers of hunters on the decline.
