Are there more coyotes among us or are we just now
reporting more sightings?
Neighbors have been reporting a surge in Coyotes sightings this past year even to the point that the city put up warnings at Orange Park. Everything South City has done an informal tracking of where the coyotes have been seen. We have had reports of them running across El Camino Real near Arroyo, off of Hillside both near Sunshine Gardens and further down towards Linden Avenue. Coyotes have long wandered the area above Avalon Park and Brentwood near the Golden Gate National Cemetery as well as all over Sign Hill and adjacent areas. We’ve also had reports of them crossing around Westborough and up near Olympic and also Winston Manor near Longford. It seems coyotes have the run of our city and can be seen just about anywhere.
It is a good reminder to keep animal food cleaned up and be aware of your small pets although we have not had any reports of harm done to anything by the coyotes. They tend to stay away from people and we need to remember they are wild animals and we need to follow their lead and stay away from them as well.
Recently one person submit a video of the late night cries heard near Sign Hill yet we have not been able to get a photo until now. We thank Cynthia Marcopulos for sharing her photo with us. Over 40 of our FB friends LIKED this photo with many more sharing comments.
We asked our Facebook friends ‘What do you see?’ and these were the responses. On the second day we answered that the location was up around Winston Manor, near the Chinese Cemetery.
