Lasagna coyote

We had a 4-inch-square piece of Macaroni Grill lasagna left over from dinner, so I put it – still in its plastic cooking tray – out as trailcam bait last night. I rather expected neighborhood dogs Zeb and Frank to get it, but it lay there unmolested until 4:50 a.m. when a coyote snatched it from the tray and carried it off to eat.

He reappeared about a minute later, his eyes glowing in the infrared light at the right edge of the frame, now wary of the glowing red infrared light source on the trailcam. He apparently didn’t think it was worth the risk to return for the lasagna residue in the tray.
