Coyotes are abundant throughout most of North America and are becoming more common even in urban areas. These images were taken at the same location and therefore may represent the same individual on February 7, 2022 and March 9, 2022 at the Billy Frank Jr. National Wildlife Refuge. The coyotes seemed relatively unaffected by our presence, possibly indicating a sick animal but more likely due to not being hunted in the sanctuary. The animals seem to be searching for gopher burrows. We had seen a coyote crossing our driveway within the city limits of Olympia and we often heard howling at night.
