Coyotes in Huntersville NC?
About two weeks ago, my husband and I were coming home after a trip to the store around dusk. As we were driving in I saw a dog running down the street. I didn’t think much about it at first, our neighborhood is full of dogs, and as we were getting out of the car, the dog came closer still running down the street…right as I start say, something about the dog, it passed not 5 feet behind the car. It was at that moment, that we both looked at each others and realized that it was not just a dog, but a wild coyote.
Now, I grew up here and we spent a lot of time in the mountains of NC growing up, so at first, I really didn’t think to much about it. Coyotes are wild and tend to not stay in one place to long, or so I though.
Last weekend, we heard them again, and so I told the kids to be home when the street lights come on, and told mom to not go out late with the dog, all the normal stuff…
Or so I thought, last night around 10:00 as she was taking the dog out for the last time, Toby went nuts barking…low and behold, the house was surrounded by coyotes, and they were in the yard at different spots looking for there next meal.
LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE…
Coyotes weighing in around 40-60 pds vs Toby weighing in a 5.5 pds
OK, they didn’t get into a fight, but Toby was ready. I know we stood outside on the porch listing to the Coyotes going back and forth calling out to each other as they moved closer and closer, staying out of the light the hole time. There really smart, but they sound more like laughing hyenas.
