While out on an early morning excursion to the Weaselhead Natural area, I came across this fellow hunting. I was standing silently on a dirt path when there was a huge commotion and not 20 feet away, a Snowshoe Hare burst out of the woods and sprinted away as fast as it could. Seconds later, this Coyote emrged from the woods in hot pursuit of the Hare. He only stopped for one intimate moment when he looked me straight in the eye before turning and chasing after the hare. Didn't see them again.
