    1. I have noticed the increased rabbit population as well. Makes sense that we should have more sightings of their predator. Come to think of it, I can’t remember the last time I had a cat in the yard.
      Go Coyotes!

  1. I’ve seen a pair cutting through my condo parking lot, near Safeway on 238th & 99 three times. Nice looking, good coats & great weight. Since, I’ve also heard a Barred Owl at night I’ve been counting these events as the prizes of staying home due to Covid-19.

  2. I have seen so many rabbits this year. I think the coyote has lots of opportunities to keep himself fed.

    Raccoons, squirrels, rabbits-this has been quite a year for growth. Even the plants have grown more than normal.

    There should not be many hungry birds.

    1. I have had a real problem with rabbits at my house this summer eating many plants. This is a first for us and we’ve lived at the same residence, close to Yost Park since 1991, I say bring on the coyotes, owls, eagles.

  3. Coyotes are attracted to uncollected dog poo. Please, pick up after your pet. They think it’s delicious.

      1. Mr. Langvold: On the issue of rodents eating wires. My ’05 Tundra had that issue several years ago. $$$ Dealership stated that the wire coating was soy based! My service writer said to go down to the dollar store and purchase fabric softener sheets. Rodents don’t like the smell. Zip tie them under the hood. I replace every six months.
