NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- Longtime surfer Kem McNair posted a raw video in social media over the weekend of a coyote roaming the Isleboro community where the surfer dude lives with a cautionary message.

McNair's Facebook posting reads: "Coyote in Islesboro tonight 9/15/18. Driving home tonight on Nordman Ave at the church on Conrad. I saw this Coyote standing in someone's driveway. I stopped and backed up and was able to get some pretty bad video of him."

The posted message from McNair warned, "if you have small dogs or cats outside at night they might end up as his meal for the evening. Beware!"

McNair, who has ridden the rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean from New Smyrna's majestic beach for more than half a century now, and operates a surf shop, that features many of his still camera and video screenshots, has captured seemingly everything nature has to offer, from spinner sharks to birds of prey like hawks and ospreys, in addition to a multitude of four-legged animals, including this sly fox.
