Annie Lareau emailed us today that there was a coyote sighting near 40th and Densmore, and then Barbara posted to the Wallingford/Fremont Community Facebook page that she saw one by 42nd and Corliss, so there’s definitely one loping around the neighborhood. They’re nothing to be afraid of…unless you’re a cat, small dog or chicken. Keep ’em locked up safe!
It’s nothing new, we posted about coyotes in Wallingford last year around this same time, as well (see Coyote Wallingford, which also has some interesting-to-me information about coyote-wolf-dog hybrids that are showing up in cities across the country). But does make me wonder about my beloved old tom that disappeared without a trace years ago.
