Coyote spotted in Ballard last night

Posted by Meghan Walker on August 10th, 2017

You may want to keep your cats indoors overnight; a coyote was spotted wandering Ballard late last night. My Ballard reader Alex DeLeon says he saw the coyote wandering around outside his house last night at 11:30 pm near Ballard High School. 

It’s not uncommon for coyotes to wander Seattle streets. They’re often seen in Seattle Parks such as Discovery and Carkeek. They’re typically timid around humans, but have been known to prey on cats. Learn more about coyote behavior on this helpful website from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
