Dang ‘ol Yotees
This morning as I was getting dressed I happened to glance out of the back upstairs window of our house and, in broad daylight, I saw a large male coyote nonchalantly walking across the hillside field. I suggested that Geoff look out the window. He confirmed that it was a coyote walking around in broad daylight and went outside to make sure that particular coyote did not eat any of our livestock for breakfast. Geoff was not able to kill the predator, but he did scare it off and none of the livestock are the worse for wear. It is disconcerting seeing the largest coyote we’ve seen in KY so far brazenly bandying about our property in the daytime. The unseasonably warm weather is throwing everyone off. The daffodils are blooming, there are buds on the cherry trees, and the yotees are wandering around in the daytime. I sure frogs and locusts are to follow.
