When I saw this forum, I knew I must add this pic. Without the pic it's just a story, but it's true. Laughed so hard after this event and could only think of Roadrunner cartoons.
A couple years ago DbleDutch team were hiking east of Larson Ridge when a pair of BIG sheep came crashing out of the brush towards us. At first they looked like Hereford cattle. They ambled down the trail ahead of us and we dropped back about 100'. Suddenly a coyote crossed the trail between us and headed left of the picture. We knew something was going to happen and stood silent, while I fished my camera out. Wiley re-entered the trail ahead of the sheep for a faceoff. The one sheep said "meh" and walked off the trail and laid down, the other stood center of the trail and stomped its front hooves on occasion as if to say "bring it". This lasted at least a minute until I stepped left to avoid a pine branch for the pic. Wiley said this was enough and exited right, quickly.
