Coyote spotted roaming downtown SF with rat in mouth.

While it's not so unexpected to see a coyote in Golden Gate Park or the Presidio, spotting one trotting around near the San Francisco waterfront is definitely jarring. On Friday evening, a coyote-on-the-go was seen racing down Vallejo Street and onto Front Street with a rat in its mouth.

Coyotes have expanded their range to 49 states—and show no signs of stopping.

For instance, at the beginning of his research, he thought coyotes would be restricted to parks and green spaces. He was wrong. “Now we have coyotes everywhere—every neighborhood, every suburban city, and downtown. The only place we don’t have them is airports, and that’s because they kill them.”

The Twilight World of Gray Foxes.

Camera traps are one of the best ways to see a gray fox, unless you’re willing to get up very early or stay up late. Gray foxes range from nocturnal to crepuscular, which means active during the night, dawn, or dusk. During the day they hide out in burrows or hollows, their small size easily allowing them to curl up and remain hidden. When they’re awake, they prey on small animals, birds, and insects, and love to snack on fruit when it’s in season.

The coyote (Canis latrans) is a widely distributed native North American canine with 19 subspecies weighing on average between 15 and 44 pounds. They live in family units or loosely knit packs of unrelated individuals. They’re primarily carnivores eating deer, rabbits, hares, rodents, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates. But they will eat fruits and vegetables, too.
