West Seattle wildlife: Whale, coyote sightings

Two wildlife sightings just in via text (206-293-6302 any time):

-Whale spotted off Alki about an hour ago – not an orca – the texter thought it might have been a gray whale; Orca Network had word of a humpback off Manchester (right across the Sound) early today. Here’s a handy guide to species ID, from The Whale Trail.

-Coyote strolling the sidewalk “on 48th between the intersection of Beach Drive and Lincoln Park Way and Graham.”

    I, for one, welcome our new coyote overlords.

    Worried that our older and slow-moving black long-haired cat has became coyote lunch. It was last seen on the afternoon of 2/23 (now over 24 hours ago). SW Othello St  at View Ln, less than a 1/4 mile from today’s coyote sighting. Thanks for the post.
