Coyote spotted in Olympic Manor

My Ballard reader Elliott posted this warning in the forum:

Just wanted to give a heads up to all of you living in Olympic Manor and surrounding neighborhoods who let your small dogs or cats out. As we were driving out of the neighborhood this evening, there was a coyote (a very young and anxious-looking coyote!) running south along 21st Ave. Trust me that I know what a coyote looks like. Keep your beloved pets inside!

Coyote sightings in the general vicinity of Golden Gardens and Carkeek Park are infrequent, but not unprecedented. And over in Magnolia over the last few weeks, a coyote has been making the rounds.

“Coyote sightings in the general vicinity of Golden Gardens and Carkeek Park are infrequent, but not unprecedented.”

I think you meant: “Coyote sightings in the general vicinity of Golden Gardens and Carkeek Park are common, and not unusual.”

We live just north of Carkeek park and see them on a semi-regular basis.

Excellent! My totem is the coyote and when I see them out and about my luck is good.

I think coyotes always look kind of anxious.

Huh? I live north of Carkeek Park, and see them all the time. Pairs of them like to run in my car headlights in the middle of the night.

2 coyotes (at least) have lived in the ravine off of 27th and 90th NW for at least 3 years now. I see them frequently from my front window late at night.

It's not a ravine, it's called The Gully. And a home to coyotes since forever.

Been living next to it for a long time now….and it is a ravine. But thanks for the input.

From the Seattle Park website:

This wooded ravine is in northwest Seattle. In 2003, it is home to at least ten great blue heron nests. It is located between 28th and 30th Avenues NW, and includes a mix of private and public ownership, primarily between NW 90th and NW 92nd Streets.
