Tuesday morning I was heading home on Nugentown Road in Little Egg Harbor when something caught my eye! At first, I thought it was a stray dog right on the side of the road, but as I slowed and passed by I discovered a full grown coyote! I've never seen a coyote this close up before, except maybe a zoo. It was about the size of a german shepard and was just standing there, kind of taking a look around.

I quickly turned around in hopes of grabbing a photo or video of this guy, but before I could get back around he decided it was best he slip back into the wooded area there along the roadway.

The picture above is NOT the one I spotted, however, it basically looked like the photo.

Have YOU ever spotted a coyote here at the Jersey Shore?
