thanks for the coyote pics. there have been reports of them in my area but i haven't really known what a coyote looks like. makes me nervous about letting my schnoodle out the back yard to pee at night.

There was a mountain lion wandering around Oak Park in Sacramento a few years back.

What's up with the infestation of Wild Turkeys in suburban Sacramento.

It used to be that you'd only see them along the bike trail by the river.

They've become a real nuisance, and of course there are idiots who feed them.

The first time I saw one in the wild while backpacking, I thought it was a dog that was separated from its master and started talking to it. I swear that he looked at me like I was an idiot. I saw a second one a minute later and realized how stupid I must have looked. Looked around to make sure no one saw...

Eastern coyotes look somewhat different than their western brethren; bigger bodied, bigger, blockier head, nose not quite as pointy.

We live at the wildland-urban interface so coyote, fox, bobcat and wild turkey sitings are common. Fewer mountain lion sitings (perhaps once every two years in my neighborhood) but they are definitely around here. The deer are everywhere, and always trying to get in and snack on the yummy flowers in our garden.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

there was a ML in Natomas last year. And a wild turkey all over my house and backyard a couple of weekends ago. Wife has seen coyotes. We got everything.

Im right in the middle here -- near both rivers and my front yard is that verticle green line in the middle, which is a 50 foot wide canal. full of ducks, swans, turtles, otters and some big bass. some guy hauled one out that must have been 18-24" just the other day.

There are a bunch of parrots living around here as well as at least 3 peacocks that show up in the yard every so often...

Nature, uh.. finds a way.

Looks like Big Kitty will not have to pay San Fran housing costs, though.

"“2020 isn’t a total dumpster fire, the San Francisco mountain lion has been captured and will be released in a wild area with lower rent.”"

I live in the suburbs of Cleveland. With a 135 acre nature preserve across the street. We have coyotes, foxes, deer, wild turkeys, racoons in large quantities. I've stopped at least two cat nabbings at night by hungry foxes and coyotes. Our neighbor's Rat Terrier was seen chasing a juvenile coyote (that was about twice the size of the small but fierce doggo) for a good quarter mile. Miss. Ratty then pranced back to her home with her tail held high as the victorious warrior.

Pretty common occurance here in North Seattle. In my lifetime, there have been at least 2 cougars moving into Discovery Park. [blog.seattlepi.com] Railway runs along the water N/S shore of Puget Sound. Like a wildlife highway. Adolescent bear too.

Countless coyotes too. When the pandemic started, I only HALF joked a suppressor on one of my target .22LR rifles or pistols and subsonic ammo would allow me to hunt in the dead of night for squirrels, bunnies ducks etc. I see 'yotes on my neighborhood just before dawn looking for bunnies and stupid small dogs and cats. Sometimes several 'yotes in a pack.

2 massive parks adjacent to that train right of way that runs all the way into N Canada.

Los Angeles County has mountain lions that get tagged and tracked by the wildlife people. We've been trying to protect the wildlife corridors so that habitats for lots of creatures remain contiguous. Once in a while a brown bear will come down to the suburban hillsides of Pasadena or La Canada (pronounced La Con Yada) and will be shown on television news splashing in somebody's pool. Pet dogs don't much like this. Here in San Pedro (across the bridge from Long Beach) there is a pretty sizable colony of feral peacocks in one section. The people who live there hate them because they sound sort of like very loud stray cats.

Pittsburgh just had a black bear wander into a park inside the city limits this week. It was relocated.

Eastern coyotes have significant wolf (25%+) and a dash (+/-10%) of domestic dog DNA. They apparently mixed with remnant wolves as they expanded from the west into the east, into the void left behind by the extirpation of eastern wolves. [en.wikipedia.org]
