Werewolf or Deer?

On Wednesdays, Karsyn doesn't have school, so we have a "Lolly Day". We usually try to do something fun. Today, we called Chase, my nephew, to see if he wanted to go to McDonald's with us and eat lunch and play. They have a lot of fun together and are in the same class at school.

We played for a while and then took Chase home. We stayed and played for a little bit. Chase and Karsyn were outside and he was trying to teach her to shoot his bow. Yes, it is a real bow and he is really good at it. They played on the trampoline and out in the yard.

I looked out to check on them, and saw what I thought was a big dog about 15 feet from them. It had stopped walking and was looking around. I yelled at Whitney and at the same time, we realized it wasn't a dog, but a coyote. About the same time, a flock of ducks flew by and the coyote ran after them. I quickly ran outside and got Karsyn and Chase in the house, while Whitney went to get one of the guys with a gun. Scared the crud out of me!!!

It was hilarious to listen to them talk about it. Chase said he thought it was a deer. Karsyn thought it was a werewolf. Later she asked me if I thought it was a deer dressed up like a wolf. Now she is telling everyone that it "tried to eat them because it was very hungry".

I told her that when they got older, they would say, "remember when . . ." She said, "yea, we will say 'when I was 4 3/4 and Chase was 5 a coyote tried to get us."

Love this story! They will talk about it for days. I am so glad you were there and saw it. I have always been told Coyotes are more afraid of people than we are of them....but I don't like taking chances. I would have been really scared too and probably would have hit the ground screaming to chase him away and I would have scared the kids more than the coyote! haha
