“There was a coyote seen on our block a few days ago,” Amy told us in an email. She said she lives near NW 80th St. and 30th Ave. NW, and the remains were “surrounded by tufts of white fur and blood.” (She sent us some photos, but we’ll spare you the graphic details. This photo shows the coyote’s tracks in her front yard.)
Over in the My Ballard Facebook group, Neighbors near the Loyal Heights Playfield also reported seeing a coyote in the area a few mornings ago. It was on NW 75th St. between 19th and 20th.
Coyotes are known to attack and eat small animals for food, and cats are particularly vulnerable. “People with small dogs and cats may want to be extra careful,” Amy said.
