Minnesota Woman Shocked At Unusual Sighting By Back Door
Are you ready to be freaked out? Have you ever had a moment where you are just staring at the TV and sort of zone out at what the rest of the world is doing? That's me normally but earlier this spring, I was binge-watching a little bit of Netflix...ok, a lot of Netflix...and everyone else was in bed already. It was just me and my dogs. Thankfully they were asleep behind the chair I was sitting in because I think they would have broken our sliding glass door if they saw what showed up in our yard.
I don't live in the city limits of Rochester, Minnesota but I do have a Rochester address so I'm not far from the rest of the busy Med City life. But I do have woods, a few acres, and deer that are in our yard every single day. In fact, in the winter, they had a path cut in the snow because they walk in the same spot multiple times a day.
What showed up by my back door though was NOT a deer. It was NOT a fox. At first, I honestly thought it was one of my neighbors' dogs because every now and then, they wander and need a little help getting back to their yards. It wasn't a dog though.
I paused my Netflix and got closer to the door to try to take a video of the prowling animal. I thought for sure that it would bolt as soon as I got closer to the door but it didn't. It hardly even cared that I was there. I did manage to get a video though and you can see it below or over on TikTok.
Crazy, right?! I'm pretty sure this was a coyote.
We hear coyotes every now and then and have had smaller coyotes near the house but never this close.
