West Seattle coyotes: 2 sightings

Two sightings your West Seattle neighbors wanted to share:

NEAR MORGAN JUNCTION: Brandon just e-mailed this:

Just wanted to report that I ran into a coyote this morning while walking the dogs, in case it is news. It came out of the alley between Mills and Willow, headed across Fauntleroy and headed down Willow [map] toward Pelly Place. It was around 7:30 this morning. My wife thought that cat owners would like to know.

MID-DELRIDGE: Sunday night, a texter reported a “coyote sighting at 24th and Myrtle [map] – our first sighting in 2 years living here.”

Just because you haven’t seen one doesn’t mean they’re not around – scroll through our archives for years of sightings (many with photos). We share them to be sure everyone’s aware they share our city (among others). Most important thing you can do if you see one is to scare it away – coexistence requires a healthy distance – lots more info on that can be found in this state-produced one-sheet.

    We’re well into mating season for coyotes and pups will be along soon, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see more of them as the weather warms. Make sure garbage is secured and don’t leave pet food outside. The number one contributor to wildlife aggression is seeing humans as a source of food.

Sorry, comment time is over.
