Since a coyote was first spotted on Bernal Hill last Monday, there have been more reports of sightings. For now, it seems as if the coyote has taken up residence here, primarily in the northeast portion of the hilltop. We are honored.
Neighbor Carolyn shared some photos of the coyote, taken this morning:
My husband and I were walking our dog around Bernal this AM (7:45-8:15) and saw the coyote! It really was an incredible sight to see. The coyote was walking around the hill from the northwest-northeast side.
However, Neighbor Ben says he has a bad feeling about this:
Coyote was back this morning. Monday it seemed to be staying up towards the top of the ridges, but today was moving up and down the hill crossing the road several times. This attracted a lot more attention from the dogs, including a larger pit-mix that chased it in a manner that didn’t look very playful.
I think the dog population is a lot higher than when we had coyotes here ten years ago. Based on today’s events it doesn’t seem like a stable situation.
