A few seconds later, along came a doe and fawn whitetail, trailing the coyote! They seemed to actually be pushing him along. They followed until all were out of sight, about 150 yds away. I've never seen or even heard of anything like it.
I would say the coyote came up on the doe and fawn alone and the doe showed aggressiveness enouggh the coyote backed off. The doe followed him out to keep him off. Now the problem I've seen with coyotes is they are usually in pack, does will back off and their fawns are toast. It really upsets me to hear of this, because I like to see a good crop of new fawns make it through that first year.
