Description

The tracks tell the story of a coyote attacking a white tailed deer fawn and then being subsequently chased by the mother (I witnessed the event). The coyote was running off with the fawn in his mouth when the doe charged him (see the gallop tracks) and forced him to release the fawn (which was unharmed). The doe proceeded to chase the coyote for 2 minutes before returning to find her fawn.
