West Seattle coyote sighting: Delridge P-Patch visitor on cam

The photo and coyote-sighting report are from Diane:

This morning once again, there was a raucous squawking of crows in the Delridge P-Patch. When we looked around, we saw a coyote run through the garden and walk into the picket-fenced yard alongside Cottage Grove Park.

We were harvesting peas from the Giving Garden plots. We’ve already harvested and donated over 250 pounds of produce to White Center Food Bank this growing season.

Congratulations to the gardeners on their generous gifts! Meantime, what the crows did is more or less what you are advised to do when you see a coyote, for your sake and theirs – scare it away. As always, we share this informational link with specific advice.

    He’s been walking around the neighborhood lately. We had a party on Saturday and saw him walking south on 26th. There’s been more than one sighting in this area this weekend.

    You should see a poor eagle when it flies into my area, the crows seem pretty good at scaring other animals they don’t like, but yea loud noises and waving things that are higher than the animals head usually work.

    That Coyote’s name is Dave and he is a North Korean fur drone. I have pictures. When we least expect it, they will be fluoridating our drinking water.Trust me on this.

    At least it’s looking both ways before crossing the street !

    I saw a small one on 23rd and Brandon in front of my neighbors porch at 10:00 a.m. on 7/9/2013. He was definitely scoping out the porches for kitties. Keep the cats indoors or they will be eaten. Especially if the cat is not afraid of dogs. Coyotes are very quiet and quick to go for the neck. There is a green space that leads up through to South Seattle Community college and that is close to where this was seen. I think that is what happened to my cat two years ago.

    If wolves were released in West Seattle they would get rid of all the coyotes. And all the Seattle wolf lovers that wanted them released in E. Wash could listen to their romantic howling in their own backyard. WIN,WIN

Sorry, comment time is over.
