Many of the coyote reports we’ve received (all of which are archived here) describe them as being in the street – or a greenspace. Here, however, we have two who are closer to home, so to speak, or should we say homes. Read on:
This one came in late Thursday night from Marty on Pigeon Point:
So, I just got home and saw my neighbor looking for one of his cats in the dark (11 pm). He said his wife saw a coyote sitting in their driveway on 19th Ave SW between Genessee and Dakota, near the green belt heading down to the Duwamish.
Again, the coyote was sitting in the driveway, seemingly unaffected by the human/vehicle presence. Pretty brave. I hope they find the cat.
Then this one came in today, from Tom in the Genesee Hill area:
Just thought I’d provide another coyote sighting. This morning at about 7:45 AM my mother saw a coyote walking down the sidewalk on the 40XX block of 52nd Ave, SW (between Dakota and Andover).
If you see one – don’t gawk – scare it away. More advice in this document from the state Fish/Wildlife Department.
