Tracking the coyote

With all the snow we have a lot of animal tracks around and the coyote loves coming through our yard.  How do I know it is a coyote?  Well, I checked the tracks against my animal manuals as well as various DNR sites on-line. Coyotes have a specific way of walking that puts their paws almost in a line.  They also have very narrow paws rather than paws that splay wide like a dog or a fox.  We bought a night camera and we are going to try to get a picture.

But until then, here are some pictures of the tracks.  He walked right in front of the garage checked for the rabbits under the front bush, were they live, and then he went around the house and on his way.
