Back in February we had record breaking snowfall around here. Every
night the silence of the frozen world was broken by the coyotes, hunting
for hidden prey in the snow. As usual, I could hear them howling and
searching. Suddenly it got silent. Like that thick heavy ear
silence. Then the sounds of coyotes yelping and snarling. Not just one,
but all of them. The commotion filled the air.
It lasted about 5 minutes. My neighbors and I have since discussed it.
We all heard it. No one ever
found signs of the fight in the snow.
remains. I haven't heard a coyote since that night. Not a single yip or
anything to this day. The dogs in
that are out at night stay
silent. My dogs inside the house sometimes look out the large sliding
door to the backyard and back away
'd love to hear the sound of a coyote agai - .
