Yesterday we did some more exploring of our 100 acre forest, look what we found..
yup that's a coyote den!
Here in Nova Scotia we have large coyotes known as the Eastern Coyote.
"The eastern coyote is basically a western coyote which has picked up significant wolf characteristics through interbreeding. This genetic make up gives the eastern coyote the potential for a much larger body size - twice the size of their close relative, the south-western coyote"
I'm glad to have found this den it gives me peace of mind knowing where they live since they have already found my home!
