West Seattle coyotes: One caught on cam in Gatewood

First photo-enhanced coyote report in a while. It’s from K. Parsons in Gatewood:

… in broad day-light after cruising around our front yards on the 7100 block of 39th avenue SW between Myrtle and Orchard, this guy was sunning himself (or herself) in our neighbors’ backyard for about 15 minutes then loped through our back-yard. This pic was taken today about noon. They sure do help with the rodent population but take care of your cats and small dogs!

    They are a beautiful creature, however I don’t want them around my pets! What a shame that “Man” cannot leave space appropriate for these animals so that they don’t have to invade our space! We don’t have to keep building in every spare areas of land pushing nature out of their natural habitat!

    I actually saw this guy around 3:00 pm trotting west on sidewalk on Trenton and 37th (there’s greenbelt going down to Fauntlee Hills from there). I was in my car on way to library and thought it was a stray dog and then realized it was too rangy and loping and it was a coyote.

    There is also a young one living in the Duwamish green space below Admiral, north of City View. I saw him/her about a month ago in the clearing on City View and we just watched eachother for a few minutes and then he slowly walked back into the overgrowth. I look for him daily but haven’t seen him since.

    And take care of your chickens! Coyotes LOVE chickens.
