Urban coyote saga continues

Posted by G.A. Matiasz on July 16, 2007

A pair of coyotes in Golden Gate Park attacked two leashed dogs on Saturday. Today, US Department of Agriculture officials shot and killed the two coyotes. “City officials and wildlife researchers estimate that about five to eight coyotes live in San Francisco. These include at least two in Golden Gate Park and one on Bernal Hill. There have also been sightings in McLaren Park, Lake Merced and the Presidio.”

Scratch two from Golden Gate Park, which means three to six city wide.

    I saw a coyote in the Presido yesterday early morning just off a trail. I don’t want to be more specific to protect this coyote’s right to privacy. He was on the trail, then politely moved off to the side as I ran past him. He looked at me, I looked at him. It was electric and chilling.

    They don’t attack humans, and they won’t attack a leashed dog with a human attending to it. SF Parks and Rec recommends making a loud noise to shoo it away. I think this is just stressful to the coyote, and you should just enjoy your commune with urban wildlife. Look, but respect. Keep going your own way. Most importantly, NEVER FEED WILD ANIMALS. The tragic coyote executions are a result of humans feeding these animals and does more harm and no good.

    This is the second coyote I spotted in the Presidio, they were def 2 different coyotes.
