A man goes on a trip. When he's driven halfway, he gets out of his car and takes a picture.

A travel trip? drug trip?

Halfway to his trip destination? Or halfway to something else?

Is "takes a picture" meant to be interpreted the same as "snaps a photo"? Or do you mean, "there is a picture there, and he takes it"?

Assuming the former, is it relevant what he uses to take the picture? Camera? Phone?
Does he take a picture of a specific object? Objects? Scenery?
Does he take the picture so that he will remember something? As proof/evidence?
Does this puzzle involve crime?

A travel trip? Yes, this kind drug trip? Not this kind

Halfway to his trip destination? Or halfway to something else? You could say that both of these are accurate

Is "takes a picture" meant to be interpreted the same as "snaps a photo"? Yes, this
Or do you mean, "there is a picture there, and he takes it"? Not this

Assuming the former, is it relevant what he uses to take the picture? Camera? Phone? Could be either but most likely uses the camera feature on his phone
Does he take a picture of a specific object? Objects? Scenery? All of these
Does he take the picture so that he will remember something? As proof/evidence? This
Does this puzzle involve crime? Not yet, but...

Is the car in the photo? Maybe (it's not relevant) Is it more relevant that he is halfway? Yes
Or that he is in a specific place? This is very relevant, yes
Is he trying to trick someone? Not yet, but... To avoid being tricked? No

You answered yes to this being a "white collar" crime. So would it be safe to say that acquiring money is the end goal? Or perhaps to avoid having to pay money? Are taxes relevant?

You also answered "no" to "fraud" being the crime? If fraud is defined as illegal deception for the purpose of financial gain, then is this fraud?

Is it relevant who actually owns the coyote? Is it a friend? family member?

If he can trick people into thinking that he knows something about coyotes and possibly that he owns them, will it benefit him because people will:

trust him?
invest money?
loan him something?
believe he has spent his time doing something other than what he has been doing?
believe he has good intentions?
believe he has expertise?

RECAP

A man takes a photo of himself, some animals, and a dead coyote.
The man did not kill the coyote but plans to pretend that he did.
The man plans to sell a product that most people find useful and helpful.
He will use the photo as part of his sales plan, and there is some degree of deception involved.

So he's going to say something like "I have this great fence, which I will sell to you, which keeps coyotes out. My neighbour has an inferior fence, so this coyote jumped over it, but I killed it."
And the lie is that this never happened? Because it rarely happens? Because he has no neighbour? Because he lives somewhere else than he's going to claim? Because the neighbour has a superior fence? Is he going to make it look like coyote attacks are more frequent or more dangerous than they are?

Yes, this is what he plans to say.


And the lie is that this never happened? The truth is that a coyote did jump a fence but he will lie when he says that he killed it..
Because it rarely happens? Well rarely for some people
Because he has no neighbour? Oh he has neighbors, LOTS of them!

Because he lives somewhere else than he's going to claim? He will be truthful about where he lives but then immediately follow that information with the important lie
Because the neighbour has a superior fence? Yes he will say this
Is he going to make it look like coyote attacks are more frequent or more dangerous than they are?
Yes, and this is related to the lie he will tell and one other thing that actually happened

Is the lie that coyotes are common (or a threat) in the area in which he resides? Is it relevant what type of residence either OH or his neighbours live in? Can coyotes jump high enough to get over he inferior fences? Can they bypass them another way? Same questions for the fencing he’s selling.

Is the lie that coyotes are common (or a threat) in the area in which he resides? It is a lie to say that they are common, but it is not a lie to say that they are a threat (see below).
Is it relevant what type of residence either OH or his neighbours live in? The exact type of residence is not relevant but there is one relevant aspect of both houses
Can coyotes jump high enough to get over he inferior fences? Yes, they can, and this is the threat that will be mentioned (and, because of something that has just recently happened, he will be able to prove this)
Can they bypass them another way? Unknown but not relevant
Same questions for the fencing he’s selling. No, coyotes cannot jump high enough to get over the kind of fence that he's selling, and they cannot bypass it any other way

Is he lying about more than the fact that they are common and the circumstances of the killing of the one in the photo? Is a recent news story relevant? Is some rome recent event relevant? Some public knowledge or belief?

Did the coyote in the news story: get captured? Get away? Get seen? Photographed? Is he pretending that he's being photographed with the coyote from the news story? Is there anything special with the coyote in the news story? With the coyote he's being photographed with? Is he going to pretend to be involved in the news story?

Did the coyote in the news story: get captured? Get away? The assumption is that it got away, the purpose of the story was not so much to say what eventually happened to the coyote but to make people aware of something that it did
Get seen? Photographed? Yes to both
Is he pretending that he's being photographed with the coyote from the news story? No, he will make it clear that it's not the same one Is there anything special with the coyote in the news story? Not about the coyote itself, no, but there is something unique about what it did With the coyote he's being photographed with? No
Is he going to pretend to be involved in the news story? No, he won't make that exact claim but he will lie about one thing that is mentioned in the story (that is connected to the trip that he made)

Him? He is not mentioned in the original story. He will tell the truth about himself that relates to the main purpose of the original story, then tell a lie about that same thing that is directly related to the coyote.

RECAP

A man takes a trip to another man's house where a coyote has been killed. When he gets there, he has a picture taken of himself with the dead coyote (which he didn't kill). Then he returns home. He will use the photo and information from a recent news story to promote his fence sales business. The story had information about a coyote that was photographed but presumably was not captured or killed. The man will be truthful about the original story but will lie about one major thing about himself in order to get people to buy his fences. His lie relates to peoples' fear of danger from coyotes.

Will he claim to be involved in the news story? He will claim, truthfully, that the news story relates to him.
To know more about the story than what was reported? No, he won't have to claim this because of information contained in the story. He will present the information and photo from the original story and then tell one lie about one part of the story and one thing about himself (see below).
To have suffered from coyote activity? Yes, this is the lie he will tell about himself, that he has personally encountered and killed a coyote. He will add one lie to this information, and this lie will be directly connected to the information given in the news story.

Was he mentioned in the news story? Seen in the news story? Interviewed? No to all. No people were named in the story, and there was very little information given aside from one very important and relevant item that he will use to promote his fences.
Was the story on TV? Radio? The web? This, it was circulated by social media. In newspapers? Relevant? Yes, it is helpful and relevant to know who would have seen the story, and this can be determined by discovering one important aspect of how the story was circulated.
Was another person with the same name as him mentioned? With the same looks? No, there were no people mentioned in the original story. There was a specific and relevant name in the story, but it was not the name of a person.

Is he going to claim that the dead coyote jumped over or otherwise bypassed the type of fence in the photo? Yes! And it did. Something about the coyote in the original photo along with this claim will be his main selling points.

Doe he claim that the original coyote and the dead coyote is the same one? Are they actually the same one? They aren't the same, and nobody knows what became of the coyote in the first picture because of the situation going on when the photo was taken. He will take credit for killing the second coyote (which he didn't actually do) and then will reference something about the coyote in the first photo which also shows a fence that people believed would prevent coyotes from getting onto their property. This information will make it very easy for him to sell his kind of fence.

**** SPOILER ****

The original story was primarily of a large coyote perched atop a 4 foot high fence. Someone had taken the photo when they saw the coyote jump up onto the fence around their yard. In the photo are some household pets very near where the coyote is perched. The purpose of the photo and story was to warn residents of a very large community that a coyote had been seen in the area and was a danger to household pets. Even though many residents had a 4 foot high fence, the photo showed that this was not high enough to keep coyotes out of yards. The man in the story got a call from his brother who lived in another town, he had just killed a coyote on his property. So the man drove to his brother's house and had a photo taken of himself with the dead coyote. Now, he will go back to his own town and post the photo from the original story along with his new photo, claiming that either the same coyote or another one got into his yard and he killed it before it killed his pets. The original photo will show that a 4 foot high fence is clearly not high enough to keep coyotes out, so residents should pay him to install the fences he sells which are 6 feet high and much more effective at keeping coyotes out.


Nice job to all, mostly Galfisk who worked tirelessly!
