West Seattle wildlife: Coyote in the snow

February 24, 2011 at 3:20 pm | In Coyotes, West Seattle news, Wildlife | 21 Comments

As another snow shower moves through the area (weather/commute updates coming up) – we have the most detailed coyote photos we ever recall receiving for WSB. Karen photographed this coyote at West Seattle Golf Course this morning.


  1. Absolutely beautiful.

  3. Great photos. Keep your kitties inside, or coyotes will eat them.

  5. That’s pretty amazing when you can count the whiskers on this wild animal. She’s a beauty. Thank you for sharing your “Kodak” moment.

  6. Just gorgeous pictures. Thanks for posting. Amazing that this creature lives only a few blocks away! That does explain some of the missing kitties in our neighborhood.

  7. WOW! great photos! how can I get copies of those?

    We have had so many coyotes in the yard lately- howling day and night.
    I see them at all hours. Would you be willing to send me copies of those?

    One was running down the street here today around 2 in the afternoon. Beautiful!

    Our yard was covered in coyote tracks today-easy to see of course- due to the snow.

    Thank you for sharing!

  8. I hear he/she has been chomping on pets. Indeed a beautiful but hungry creature.

  15. I really would be helpful if people would indicate a location that they have spotted, seen, tracks, eaten pets, etc. Saw tracks all over the snow today, down in shorewood, could not figure out if they were fox or wiley.

  17. Thanks to the person who flagged a comment above. If you are only using a photo personally – a screensaver perhaps – right clicking to save is OK, but it is NOT ok to republish, even if just to your own website or Facebook page. Everything on WSB is copyrighted (and the presumption on any website is the same, unless you have a notation such as a Creative Commons license for anyone to use your material). Just wanted to mention that. And also of note, when we are asked by other publishers about the availability of a photo, while we speak for anything that either of us co-publishers have shot, we always ask permission from anyone else – be it a paid freelancer or a WSB’er who sent in a photo – we do not assume we have all rights to photos we publish.
    PS – Re: Shorewood, I did receive a Shorewood-area coyote report the other day. – TR
