Coyotes At Antelope Island

I wasn’t expecting to get an up close look at the Coyotes while I was visiting Antelope Island State Park but I got lucky and was able to see a few. I even was able to photograph a pair hunting together.

These Coyotes were busy hunting and didn’t seem to care much about the humans that were on the roads nearby. I watched them hunt the tall grass and I even watched one dig a large hole looking for a meal. It caught whatever it was digging for but the Coyote had its back to me and I wasn’t able to see what it was.

As you can see in my photos, these Coyotes look good and healthy.

    Great shots, Steve! To someone leaving near the Gulf coast, Antelope Island first looks like a barren spot not likely to support these guys. But your photos prove otherwise. Thanks for sharing.
