Coyote spotted in Loyal Heights

“This guy was out jogging this morning, corner of Earl and 80th,” posted Kurt in the My Ballard Facebook Group with this photo.

Coyotes are not uncommon in Ballard — especially near Golden Gardens — but a photo of one strolling down the street is a relatively rare sight.

Not surprised. When you have a large subset of the city who leave food scraps and chicken bones all over the place you’ll start to see in increase in rats and coyotes. Might be a self solving problem though.

We should tax people with jobs to build condos for the coyotes.

Subset? There is a homeowner down the street from me who chums her yard with leftovers and water bowls. The good thing is I think she is nuts and her behavior predates our coyote sightings, the bad news is one of my neighbors is nuts.

I saw one walking down 20th and 62nd about a month ago while walking my dog around 4am.

Of course, I had nothing to do with this. Meep Meep!

That’s weird. Why would a bunch of humans make a road through the coyote’s yard?

Every time you hijack a thread, Jesus feeds a kitten to a coyote.

Thread hijacking isn’t just wrong. It’s a sin. Jesus saw what you did.

Normally I disagree with ‘chos, but this made me laugh. However, there is no Jesus. No Elvis, Beatles, or the Rolling Stones either.

Is this the same coyote that is bringing illigal Mexicans into our country. Build that wall, make Ballard great again

Unironically great idea. The heroin the homeboys slang to our “valuable neighbors” comes from Mexico.

I’d rather have Wile E on the loose than junkies. In fact, maybe the coyote’s can help thin the junkie numbers in Ballard.
