I was returning home yesterday around 2:30 from picking up the TG bird and just about to pull into my driveway when a yote crossed the street right in front of my vehicle. He's just trotting along like someone's dog. I pull to the curb and roll down the window just as he trots by on the sidewalk. I give him my patented call, "Yotie-O!" and he just gives me a backwards glance as to say, "STFU." I must say that he was one of saddest, scruffiest, and mangiest yote I have seen in a long time. Either he actually did have mange or had been in a lot of fights because I could see pink patches all over his muzzle. I have seen yotes with big beautiful tails that would rival any German shepherd, but this one was all thin and scraggly. Perhaps there WAS something wrong with him since he was alone. *shrugs* I'll just have to keep a closer eye on the kitties when they're out.
