Out on my walk yesterday I found......Coyote tracks.
(L) Dog print vs (R) Coyote print
The points that tell it is a Coyote print are -
1- the print is slimmer
2 - you can make an X across the paw in the negative space
3 - the trail pattern of a Dog is zig zag as they are playful whereas
a Coyote trail pattern is straighter as they are always on a mission
I always check the tracks I find when taking my walks. One winter we found the tracks of a Bobcat that were really fun as they showed us that he was walking along and then began to run (the spacing between paw prints got wider and wider).
Enjoy your day!
