Wolves! also, foxes and stuff|

Oops, not that type of wolf . . .
I was going to say that I had a wolf song that you've never heard, but, well, . . .
Long ago, when fantasy author C. S. Marks was still ethology grad student Chris Marks, she wrote a song called "Prairie Wolf Song" about, er, coyotes. And their behavior.
Since at the time I had very recently been an ethology undergraduate student, I collected it, and put it in the science section of my science fiction music collection.
Now that I've talked about it in public, I probably should woodshed it before I'm tempted to sing it in front of people.

Re: Oops, not that type of wolf . . .
I remember you singing that song (now that you mention it); I always thought you'd written it. If I had known that it was written by Chris Marks I wouldn't have guessed that it was that Chris Marks.
I do have coyotes living around me. I've actually seen them a handful of times and I hear them sometimes. (I probably hear them often, but unless they're making noises that domestic dogs don't, I tend to assume it's dogs.)
