This afternoon, we were out walking the perimeter path on the farm with the dogs when we were suddenly amazed to see a young white-tailed buck leaping across the field beside us. He disappeared behind the old fieldstone barn. But then, about one minute later, we were literally struck dumb to see a very healthy looking brush wolf (coyote) running in the same direction as the deer. The dogs were too low and missed the entire thing.
