Wildlife of Kentucky: Black coyote - or Yotedog, Adair Co., KY

trapped a black coyote this morning, January 21, 2014. Black coyotes are quite rare, he said. He's only been trapping a short while, after receiving instruction from the best trapper in the profession, who now takes pride in his student's acheivement and calls him "Dan'l Boone." He thinks that the black color comes from a cross with a German Shepherd, which creates a "Yotedog." The coyote is his 25th career coyote catch. His skills are now much in demand, from farmers who want to reduce the predator population. He can be be reached at 270-634-1667. In real life he's stays pretty busy in the family business, working with his father in Franklin Oil Well Services. - CM.
