We observed a young adult Coyote cross McDermott Road near Culberson Drive at around 7:30pm last night. The Coyote was moving from a residential subdivision to Russell Creek Park. Traffic was light, and the Coyote successfully completed the maneuver.
Russel Creek Park is a large sports complex in Plano, Texas. It has many soccer fields and baseball diamonds. There is a small lake on the property and a narrow band of woods runs along the park’s eastern border.
The park was vacant last night, and the Coyote quickly disappeared into the darkness.

On January 28, 2014, I saw a coyote trotting down the side walk on Brewster Drive in Plano, TX. The animal had a very bad case of mange. I knocked on the window and he looked at me and continued on his journey, not in any hurry.
Mange is hard on Coyotes. Sad to hear about this case, but thank you very much for sharing the observation.
