A local hunter reports that he checked out the photos on his trail camera Tuesday morning and was shocked to find a coyote in clear view.

The camera was set up in Bridgehampton, north of Montauk Highway, to track deer, according to hunter Dan Mac. He says he had never seen the coyote before.

The photo was taken at 1 a.m. on January 20.

A coyote was previously spotted and photographed in Water Mill in June 2013. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation came out and said its naturalists believe it was, in fact, a coyote, and not a dog.
