Last Saturday evening around 8 p.m. while walking the dog around the pond in the industrial park in south Peterborough, we spotted a Coyote just to the east of the big dirt pile to the north of Fisher Drive. It had come from the south and was heading north. I tried to get to a spot where we might see it cross the dirt road but we did not see it again. I circled back to where we had seen it originally and was able to get pics of its footprints. I have only seen coyotes twice before in the Ptbo area in the 19 years we have lived here.
