On Sunday evening @hello_katty sent out a tweet alert:
"Let folks in the Midwick Tract know to watch their small pets. There's a coyote roaming. Saw it on Cabrillo tonight."
We've heard via Facebook about a lot of other spottings in the area. Nancy Ruiz wrote that on Wednesady night near Grandview Market: "I saw a coyote and it saw me. The coyote wasn't scared, but I sure was."
Earl Jones wrote that he saw one last on Electric Avenue at 3am (Linda Moody's neighbor saw one there as well). Daniel Dupill worte that he once knew of a den on the hillside between Hampden Terrace and Palentine. "We could hear them howl in concert with fire and police sirens regularly – and see them often on Hampden Terrace." And "Auntie Apple" said she spotten one in front of Ramona Convent." Fernando Morales said he saw a baby one running toward another place of worship, St Therese.
John Garica said he spots them on Huntington Drive, Mauricio Perez said Woodward and Fifth was the spot, and Kelly Yamagashi said for her it was North Olive and Pine. "A pack of three were chilling on my lawn," she writes.
