A hunter has shot what is believed to be one of the biggest coyotes ever recorded in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The coyote was double the size of regular large coyotes. It weighed in at 82 pounds.
“I’ve been hunting a long time. This is the biggest one I’ve seen, the biggest one I’ve weighed,” Fleming, said.
When he first saw the tracks a couple months ago, Fleming said he thought it was a lynx and hoped it wasn’t trailing him to jump him.
But then he realized there was a small coyote traveling with the animal.
