Huge game changer folks in the Hamptons wildlife ecosystem. I spotted and photographed a very healthy adult coyote in a field very close to the Sagaponack / Wainscott border. I saw it running across the field and took a side road to get closer. My camera is always at the ready and this time was no
different. I lifted my camera to my eye as the coyote crossed the road I was on. I stopped, jumped out of the vehicle and began shooting high speed shots in low light conditions. I feared the worst when I was done but, turns out I got the goods. It was running away from me and I knew it was a coyote instantly by the face, tail, gait and the fact that it ignored me. I yelled out "Wylie" real loud and it stopped for a brief moment to turn and give me that beautiful confirming smile. Then off it went. You'll notice in the following shots, that either the coyote is eating very very well (due to its mid section size) or it's a she and you know what that means. Either way folks, it's no longer a rumor or a possibility. WE HAVE A COYOTE IN THE HAMPTONS AND YOU CAN BE CERTAIN THERE ARE MORE.
This changes the game in all varieties of pest control and nuisance wildlife control. Fortunately for those in the Hamptons, I have many many years experience trapping coyotes. I live trapped them on a ranch in Texas to save our goat and cattle herds. I've trapped and photographed them in Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. Best of all I am fully prepared to live trap them right here. I'm presently the only Wildlife Removal & Rescue service with the knowledge and the traps to safely trap and relocate eastern coyotes in the Hamptons. Any questions or concerns about coyotes, please call Hampton Wildlife Removal & Rescue at 631-377-6555.
I also took a few great shots of our proud Town Pond swan. Enjoy.
