this was quite a surprise! about 2:00AM a coyote actually attacked one of my cameras. I don't know if they can see infra-red light but when the camera tripped on he went right for it. he took the camera and chewed on it non-stop for a full 15 minutes and it kept on working. I have about 20 clips of the little bugger chewing it up. I always wanted to see what the inside of a coyote's mouth looks like!

 

I went looking for it today and finally found on the neighbor's hill about 100 feet away. the latch was broken and teeth marks all over but still working. I taped it together and it is working just fine.

 

I can't figure out how to share the video clips but they are pretty cool!
