Prairie Wolf

That’s right, wolves are living down the street from my house! Well, coyotes are anyway, though they have lost that particular name over the past several decades, coyotes are still the closest relatives to wolves we have living in viable numbers in Colorado. Here are a couple shots of the ones that live in the open space by my house. We used to see them more commonly on our morning walks, but for the last year or two, they have been very shy, which probably had something to do with the coyote attacks that occurred here in Broomfield, as well as further south. For some reason, the cold and snowy weather brings these critters out in the open more often in their search for food. The day these were taken was no exception, the snow was coming in and it was getting mighty chilly!
