2 coyotes howling and yipping at me, my dogs, and several other people hiking in the research park near Oakwood.
I’ve always been aware of their presence in the park (heard them at night, saw scat in the park). This is the first time I’ve seen them. I think development (Illumina on the West end and Exact Sciences on the East end) is really squeezing them into a smaller area.
I plan to forgo the pleasure of hiking there to respect those wild creatures and protect my dogs from an unfortunate interaction.

While walking my dog I spotted a large coyote (my guess s that it was at least 40 lbs.) with almost black fur in a neighbor's front yard. It trotted around the the back yard once it noticed that I'd spotted it.

Watched coyote move along the outside of Sycamore Dog park for 20 minutes from 7:20-7:40 am. The coyote was easily identifiable by the thick, bushy tail with black tip. Coyote was sincerely interested in the dogs and owners walking inside the park, but never made a move to jump the fence. Peed on multiple plants as it moved along towards the back trail.

Roaming in field. Yipping often. I was walking with my dogs. It started yipping, my 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks chased it-It ran, hunched and tail down. My dogs came back to me, the coyote also came back to my area. My dogs chased it again, until I called them back. Saw the coyote again, it watched us from 100 yards away, yipping and howling most of the time. I have seen a coyote in this field since early July.

I was leading a tour at the UW-Madison Arboretum. Approximately 12 people were with me. We were in the service drive/garages area east of the Visitor Center. We had just come around the building called the Teaching Barracks (an old CCC building), when an adult coyote ran out from under the building. It disappeared into a sugar maple woods to the east. I remember thinking that it looked thin.

I was finishing up leading a tour at the UW-Madison Arboretum. We were in the south central part of Longenecker Gardens, next to a grove of white pine trees. Suddenly an adult coyote ran from the shrub gardens just west of us, running in an easterly direction, toward Gallistel Woods or the garage area. It vanished from our sight quickly; I did not see exactly where it went. It appeared to be moving normally.

A short time later, a visitor told me he had seen a coyote in approximately the same area, but thought its gait didn't look normal and he wondered if it was sick or injured. I went back to the area with him, but we did not see the animal. It was likely the same individual I had seen.

Single coyote was trotting down N Westfield Rd in Middleton towards Longmeadow Rd. Paid no attention to me or my dog, who I had let out in the front yard. My dog got to within 5 feet of the animal (behind him) but there was no confrontation.

There is a creek bed behind our house. We let our dog (65 lbs) out in our backyard and my husband noticed an animal in some tall grass, stalking and closing in on our yard. Based on its movements, he thought it was a bobcat, grabbed his binoculars and saw it was a coyote. He called the dog in and the coyote still was approaching and was quite close. He went outside screaming and eventually it moved along but didn't seem to spook or run off quickly. We've seen coyotes back there before but this interaction was much different than what he felt was normal.

It was a fox, brownish tho. Ran in front of my car on Engel Rd by Shopko. I was on my way to work. It ran like from Shopko lot towards the small mall on Engel St. It did turn & look - not sure if at my car or for other Foxes? I did not see any, but it was dark out.

We have a motion light in our backyard. Over the past few months I have seen a red fox pass through about 5-6 times. It has been anywhere between late night (11:00 pm) to early morning (5:00 am). The fox always passes from right to left. Doesn’t stick around long in our yard, like it’s on it’s way somewhere. One of those times a few months ago, I saw two foxes pass through together. But recently, only one. We have dogs, but they are inside at that time of night.

I have what I believe is Coyote Skat in my yard. A lot of it. New findings every few days. Attached is a few pics. Have NOT seen a coyote. Have had seen fox back a few years, but not since then.

Neighbor put up fence and has small dogs, wondering if this might be reason for them to hang out here. Timing of Skat and fence related.

Thanks

The Red Fox came running from the eastern part of our yard down the hill toward the west and Waterford Rd. I did not see it after that. It looked in good condition. It's coat looked healthy. It happened so fast I was not able to take a photo of the Red Fox. I was inside my house in the family room looking out the large window when I saw the Red Fox in the back yard. The sighting lasted only a few seconds.

The fox was in our front yard and we were watching from the front window. We were alerted to it because our dog was barking. It ran up our walk and stayed in the yard for about a minute before running into the neighbor's yard.

Next to the neighbors' patio. My dog had been barking at something a few minutes earlier. Fox was in no hurry, and his coat didn't look as full as usual. Left the house to see if I could get close enough to see tags, but lost it.

I was walking through O.B. Sherry Park along the bike path by Starkweather Creek, when I saw what I at first thought was a dog the got off leash. But as it skulked through some trees closer to me, I saw that it was a coyote. I stopped to watch it continue from one bunch of trees to another and then take off running for the far side of the park closer to Milwaukee Street.
