The fact that the coyote was not intimidated by you and your dogs, should give you some pause. Coyotes are now attacking humans. There is this famous fatal attack out in Nova Scotia, but I also saw a YouTube video taken by a hiker as he is being attacked by a young coyote. I can't find the video now, of course.
Apparently the coyote population is exploding and they have interbred with wolves.

Thanks Jason! That was a good sized coyote. It knows exactly where to go so our dogs couldn't get him. It was a good 300m away behind two sets of fence. The video was shot with 15X zoom. You can imagine this little guy can make noise!
