Coyote Sighting

We've heard over and over that urban wildlife is getting bolder and less afraid of humans. Here's more evidence. On Friday, at 10:30 in the a.m., I saw a very healthy-looking coyote galloping down Kenneth towards Alameda. That's pretty far into human territory. That's pretty late in the day, too -- usually they're hiding after dawn. He/she was making no attempt to hide, either. Please keep your kitties indoors.

    COYOTE SIGHTING - Dont just keep your kitties indoors make sure your dogs are safe. Coyotes can attack upto a ten year old child, so your medium size dog is no match.

    PLUS - they cant JUMP 6 feet walls with no effort. Ive seen in four different occasions coyotes in my own back yard! The CITY or the STATE must do something regarding these COYOTES. I dont feel safe neither for my pets or for any member of my family to be out doors at night. From Dusk to Dawn keep your pets indoors, if you must take them out make sure you are out there with them, with something loud and strong near by if you need to god forbid have to defend your pet or youself from these fearless beasts! Thanks for reading...
