When not one but two naturalist sorts agree that it was a red fox and not a coyote pup Chris Howe captured on his phone, I will go with the biologists. The original entry is posted below.
Chris Howe caught this coyote pup in the south suburbs on his cell phone last week. I tried to pull out the photo better on flickr.
He sent this this:``My wife and I saw this coyote pup on 110th and Bell on this past thursday. I know the pictue is kinda blurry, but it was the best I could get with my cell phone cam.''
In a follow-up, he said it was definitely a coyote pup and not a fox.
It's just neat to see stuff like that.
