The great coyote release!

That is the happy headline for this lucky girl. You may remember her back in the beginning of December when John managed to catch her while attempting to rescue another male out there with the same problem. Well, Tuesday was the big day. I picked her up at Tuft's and met John for the big release. He had chosen the perfect spot for her away from traffic and people with lots of woods, and close enough to reconnect with her family.
Those georgeous eyes! She was anxious to be out!

Finally the big moment arrived!!!
Don't let the picture fool may look like she just casually walked out, but not so! She was out of there like a racehorse out of the gate!

She wasted no time getting as far away from us as possible! One final shot as she rounded the corner out of site and it was over in seconds!

If you watch the video from the story in the paper above, you'll see just how quick it really was. Another great day for was wonderful to watch and it's great to know there are many out there willing to help these beautiful animals as opposed to those who would see them harmed out of fear and ignorance. I know one golf course that will be thrilled to have their exterminator back!
All I know is that seeing these animals go home is just a wonderful feeling beyond words. :)

And in keeping with good things happening this week, my buddy Hissy & the Missus showed up a couple days ago! So good to have them back safe and sound. Like it or not, it's officially spring out on my pond!
