Coyote Road Agents

     We spotted these coyotes in Death Valley just south of Bad Water.  Bad water is the lowest point in North America at 282 ft. below sea lever. It is a hard environment.  When I first saw them I thought that we had just happened upon them while they were going about their business.  But it quickly became clear that they were panhandling.

     To live in this environment you would have to exploit any and all opportunities.  Evidently these coyotes at some point were going about their business when someone saw them and said, "Hey look, coyotes," and tossed them some food.  Then there was an "AHA" moment.
