Coyote sighting in Upper Fauntleroy

“West Seattle 101” author Lori Hinton just saw one running down her Upper Fauntleroy street. “Right past a ‘Coyote Warning’ sign,” she adds. (By the way, we will add two more pages tomorrow to our new “West Seattle 101” section featuring selections from Lori’s book – including a spotlight on one of WSB readers’ favorite restaurants – look for the official announcement in the morning.)

    I live at Portland and 44th and there is a family of coyotes living diretly below my house, about 100 feet from my deck. I saw one last weekend and two this weekend sleeping in the sun as if they were not afraid of anything or anyone.

    As much as i love seeing them, their population is growing in West Seattle as new pups sound as if they arrived in the past couple of days.

    I find this scary and sad. Scary because there are so many families with kids walking their dogs in the area, and sad because we as humans today take so much more than we need from the earth that we are encroaching on the other beings that share our planet without a care.

    I heard our local coyote family (Fauntleroy Park off 97th) calling to each other at about 2 pm. Beautiful music until my 3 year old decided to chime in.

    March 31st at 3:50am – was serenaded with a coyote chorus – sounded like it was right outside our window (44th & Raymond). Beautiful, haunting, surreal. Hoping to hear from them again. Several pups “singing” as well – honored to be part of their audience.

    I live on the corner of 38th and Myrtle and have seen about 4 of these running down my backyard down below to the street. I have pictures to prove!
    I have a child and a small dog and am extremely concerned for their safety……

    About 8AM I saw a coyote crossing the road in front of our house 39th & Othello. There was a pair in our back garden last month which also crossed the street. Last November, we had one in our back garden. It is always about the same time of day. I believe that they are coming up from the Orchard St. Ravine as it was recently cleared. Our garden path goes deep into the woods, so it is an easy route. They are fascinating to watch, but am glad that we have indoor cats…. Still, won’t be leaving my newborn out in his stroller to sleep!
