High desert mountains, seasonal lake, 7000 ft elevation
Pack of 4 coyotes, they oftened followed us on our walks with dogs. They never harassed us, probably because our dogs obey when off-leash; but they would often run from, corner, and circle other peoples' dogs that chased them. The smallest one would "bait" us, always staying within close range. the second largest would follow at a distance, but within the brush, somewhat out of sight. The second smallest would be far out on the dry lake or farther down the shore, but within sight. The biggest would remain hidden until lesser obedient dogs would give chase, then he would sprint after the dog giving chase, essentially trapping it between all four coyotes.
