My neighbor Karen Sanford took these great pictures of a couple of coyote pups in her yard last week. Their mom left, but these two hung around--eating fruit! Those are nectarines on the ground, put out for the birds, and the pups are scarfing them up.
They also spent some time under the fig tree--not only eating figs off the ground, but also pulling them right off the branches.
Who knew that coyotes had a sweet tooth? I didn't. Since this incident several people have told me, "Coyotes will eat everything." I never would have thought that "everything" included fruit!
