Wildlife Sighting by Moonlight

The sound was what caught my attention.  I looked up, presuming bats were flying near my head. Saw only the full moon.   The sound grew closer, like hoof beats. I felt the breeze as the animal whizzed out of the shadows behind me, followed closely by two larger creatures.

 I stopped walking, and held my breath.  They hadn't noticed me in their hunt, and I didn't want them to.  As they sped past me and into the town common, I could see them more clearly: something like a silver fox stealing away from two coyotes.  They gave up their pursuit, regrouped, and ran behind the library into the open field.
