Think you’ve had a tough winter?

This photo of a coyote up in a tree was forwarded to me by Nicole Davros, upland game project leader for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Madelia, Minn. The photo was taken by a landowner near the Sandhill Wildlife Area near Babcock, Wis. Carrie Milestone, a Wisconsin DNR wildlife technician offered this comment in her e-mail with the photo:

“This photo is from a landowner adjacent to Sandhill.  A coyote has learned to climb apple trees and knock frozen apples to the ground.  It is climbing 10-15 feet up.  It then climbs down to eat them.  It did this two days in a row on two different apple trees.  The fence in the back ground is about 5 ft tall.”
