This location was a place where coyotes are seen sometimes . I saw one waiting for a traffic signal to change in Silverlake and mistook him for a dog until he looked at me with bared teeth .

Coyotes in urban areas is sad .

We have the European red fox (an introduced animal) and they are similar in their ability to live pretty much anywhere. They are a declared pest here as they do terrible damage to native animals as well as being pretty hard on small livestock (such as lambs). I get rid of them when I can (for the benefit of the native animals). But what amazes me is their ability to live in big cities. In cemeteries and along railway lines they find suitable habitat. Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne have good fox populations and I believe they can even be found close to the centre of London. I guess coyotes are no different - they are the same kind of omnivorous scrounger. So "sad" may be a value judgement that the coyote would not share with us. But we don't have rabies here, so that is another aspect.

Very cool. Very shy animals so catching them with a camera is a feat!

Nice photo. However, I can't say that I'm a fan of any coyotes except for the Arizona Coyotes. They're wickedly tough on dogs.

This coyote certainly knows you're there. I like the monochromatic flavor of this image. Thanks.
