Dr. Patrick Rusz, Director of Wildlife Programs for the Conservancy, and Michael Zuidema, a retired DNR forester, verified the trail cameras location on a well-worn wildlife trail atop a wooded ridge
The camera has also photographed wolves, coyotes, fishers and numerous other species at the same site over a four year period.

They’ve been seen as far East as CT and MA. It was widely denied until one got hit on one of the highways in CT. It was tracked back to the Dakotas.

Big kitty. A coyote killed a friend's dog this week and the postmistress said she sees coyotes in the yard in front of the church across the street some mornings.

Went camping in a remote area week and a half ago and woke up to fresh Cougar (or Mountain Lion, as we call ‘em out West here) tracks all around my tent.

Okay, I have to be VERY careful here. Nice kitty.
Strangely enough, I really did come to this thread for the pictures.

I live in Jenison, MI. I have Coyotes in the back yard. Have my .17 cal ready and waiting. Kind of residential around me but I have 10 acres right in the middle of town. With my nice neighbors and the new fireworks law here in Meechigan, I dont have to worry about reported gunshots.
