INKSTER, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) — We’ve seen coyote sightings caught on camera around the outskirts of Metro Detroit, often darting across the screen or slipping by in a wooded area. But this brave coyote was captured in the middle of Inkster and he came quite close to a local’s home.

In fact, video on the Neighbors app shows him right on their front porch.
