A howl in the night.
A watchful eye in the darkness.
A flutter of movement among the trees.
In the dark of the night, a mother coyote stalks prey to feed her hungry pups. Her hunt takes her through a suburban town, where she encounters a mouse, a rabbit, a flock of angry geese, and finally an unsuspecting turkey on the library lawn.
Perhaps Coyote's family won't go hungry today.
