West Seattle wildlife: Chicken-coveting Pigeon Point coyote

October 22, 2011 at 11:50 pm | In Coyotes, Pigeon Point, West Seattle news, Wildlife | 3 Comments

The Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council e-mail list has been abuzz about that coyote, photographed last Tuesday afternoon “on Genesee and 20th Ave SW (map), heading toward the headwaters of Puget Creek in the greenbelt adjacent to Pathfinder K-8,” according to Joni. We requested the photo after reading her account of the coyote trying to get into the chicken enclosure at her home, which is near the school. Joni says somebody tried to shoo the coyote away but it “didn’t even blink … and stuck around long enough” to be photographed. She has since raised the fence on the chicken enclosure, and reminded neighbors on the list, “Please don’t leave food out for animals, and keep your pets safe!” She also shared the link that we include in most coyote reports – “living with coyotes” info from the state – including what to do when you see one.

  3. Saw a coyote on the way to work this morning, on the 4700 block of 47th Ave SW, just a few blocks west of True Value.
