Coyote gets BT Jack
The coyote caught BT Jack in mid-June, and strolled past the camera 45 minutes before midnight.
BT Jack is the black-tailed jackrabbit; that's how I abbreviate the species in our data tabulations for the Chimineas Ranch.
A 5 lb jack rabbit is a decent meal for a 30 lb coyote, and this coyote seems to have already devoured nearly half of it.
Another coyote happened by but was less composed.
And the bobcat was a bit spooky, though it didn't depart till it had sniffed the bait under the rock.
