p.1 #1 · White Coyote at Yellowstone


When roaming half hidden in the distant sagebrush, this coyote excited the Yellowstone photographers into frenzied anticipation. They were convinced it was the local celebrity white wolf that lives nearby. But even when it came over the rise and showed its coyotiness, it still caused a traffic jam, a tourist event, and a photographic flurry. Luckily I was already parked and photographing at a location ahead of the coyote.

1. Ignoring the pursuing crowd, the coyote trots up the slope from the Hayden Valley.

2. Keeping watch on the mass of approaching gawkers, the coyote checks an interesting smell.

3. The coyote takes a parting look at the horde of people and a Park Ranger arriving to restore peace and order.

that coyote was very popular on the road - I got some nice shots of him up the hill - he seemed to be playing the crowd quite well

There were several in this area. On the same day I found a second white coyote about 5 miles to the south. Web info suggests that whiteness is genetic, not just a winter color, so maybe the two are related. However, the web info wasn't definitive. Regarding "playing the crowd," this was a concern of the Park Ranger for this area, and is a big quandary for the Yellowstone wildlife managers. On one hand, the mammals are a big attraction of the Park; on the other hand, if the animals get too familiar with the more than 3 million visitors each year, some foolish human will get too close and get bitten, gored, stomped, etc.

And when that happens, they should shoot the person - not the animal... ~ Ron
