GOOD IDEA TO LEASH YOUR DOG ALONG CRESTLINE TRAIL. We've had two reports of a coyote following hikers and tussling with their dogs along Crestline Trail in recent days. Idaho Fish and Game suspects that there is likely a den nearby and that the response from the coyote is a result of that. At this time of year the pups should be leaving the den very soon if they have not left already. Introducing another canine into a breeding pairs denning area would probably be enough to elicit an aggressive response from the coyote. Once the pups leave the den the family would not be as tied to the immediate area and that should alleviate some of the potential conflict. In the meantime, it would be wise to either keep your dog on a leash in this area, or avoid Crestline Trail.
