A coyote finds a buffet of meadow voles in a field of freshly cut, swathed hay near the Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge in Northeastern Washington. Outdoors editor Rich Landers watched the song dog cruise rows and effortlessly reach in with its snout to grab “field mice.” The morsels were tenderized with a few chomps and swallowed whole. In five minutes the coyote easily caught and ate 10 helpings, no running or pouncing necessary. It was still hunting and feasting when Landers drove away. (Rich Landers)
