Struggle for Survival

I followed this coyote for more than an hour while he was moving around. He did not care much about me. At some point he stopped, turned his head on the side to hear better and then he jumped face down in the snow to come out with a prairie dog in his mouth. He killed it and started to walk away to find a place to eat it.
