Several weeks ago, we came across some dog and coyote poo, right near each other. Do you know the difference? Here is some photo evidence:
If you guessed that the blackish-grey one is coyote, you are right! And if you guessed that the brown one is dog poo, you are also right!
When we looked closer, we could see fur and small bones in the coyote poo. When we looked closer at the dog poo, it just looked like grainy shades of brown. We also noted that while the coyote poo was supposed to be there (the park habitat is its home), the dog poo was out of place. This park habitat is not its home, and so poo should be picked up on paths. Hmmm...
In another area of the park (on a much less snowy day 2 weeks ago), there was deer scat (fancy word for poo). Here are some:
So much to see in the woods, and the winter woods scat can be especially fascinating!
