While those long timers in South San Francisco have witnessed a good variety of wildlife it still can be a novelty for some and it is worthy to remind neighbors that their small pets could be seen as prey for some of them, especially our local coyotes. One neighbor sent us this reminder last evening:

“I wanted to give folks a “heads up” about coyote activity in our area (Hillside/Hemlock/Franklin). Last night around 10 pm I heard a group of coyotes howling and chasing (I assume) something near our house. My neighbors also confirmed hearing them at that time, and again around 11:30. This serves as a reminder to be sure pets are safely inside at night, and to be cautious when venturing out at night…”

After sharing this on our Facebook page we received a few other warnings as shared below:

 

Sean: They are all over….pretty typical especially this time of year. I saw a pack of three on Greendale/Galway area around midnight. They won’t go after people…but small dogs/cats/rabbits/fowl…..game on. Take care of your pets and bring them in.

Mimi: We live in this neighborhood and they howl and cry every night around that time. Sometimes for 30-45minutes!! And it sounds like a ton of them. They’ve also been seen roaming the streets (Larch/Hemlock) more then once before in the middle of the night. So please make sure your pets are safely indoors before 10pm!
