Colin Beatson shared this photo of a coyote spotted near his home on Tamarac Ave. in downtown Trail. He described in an email to the Trail Times a walk he took with his dog late Wednesday night. “I was taking my dog out for a quick jaunt before bed (midnight), playing fetch with her out in my backyard when she dropped her toy suddenly and bolted. I didn’t see the coyote until I caught up with her and then saw the two of them just standing there next to each other just beside Barks & Rec pet store. I called my dog and as she reluctantly came to me the coyote tagged along as well at about a 30-foot distance (very close). It followed us right to my doorstep. I took the dog inside and grabbed my camera. When I got back out I could no longer see the coyote. I waited out there anyways and then maybe five minutes later it emerged from between two houses across the street and once again it came right up to me. If I didn’t back up I swear it would’ve been close enough for me to reach out and touch it. As it was it came within 10 feet and just stood there.” If you have a recent photo you would like to share with our readers email it to editor@trailtimes.ca. Colin Beatson photo
