I saw a coyote in Ada.
The critter was across the street from where I live on State Route 81. He was near a large walnut tree, just yards from the Baptist Church.
At first glance, he looked like a stray dog, which is not an unusual sight in this area of town where dogs escape their confines or are dropped off by bad owners and left to fend for themselves.
The animal and I made eye contact. Thinking it was a stray dog, I tried to coax it to me with a sack of cat food that I happened to have in my hand.
