Allesandro St. Near Oak Glen: Coyote Sighting

Photo: Jonathan Vandiveer, October 10, 2013.  Just after 8:30 AM Thursday, a good sized coyote walked right past Vandiveer's car, in the middle of Allesandro St. between Cove & Oak Glen, and through a gap in the 2 Freeway fence at this location.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Keep your dogs on a leash and don't leave your small animals outside, unattended. 

With the drought, natural prey animals (rats & gophers) are more scarce, so expect more daytime coyote sightings.  But then it's not unusual to see coyotes in the daytime in our neighborhood.  I also think the proliferation of urban chicken farming in our area draws coyotes into more backyards

Hey Silver Lake Neighborhood Council: maybe you should declare the 2 Freeway parkways a coyote reserve so CalTrans won't tear out all the trees to build a giant sound wall between Oak Glen & Rosebud on Allesandro St.  (That's why we don't have a bigger meadow at the Silver Lake Reservoir.)
