Coyotes Taking Over the Empty Streets of SF
While dogs and cats are enjoying their moment with their fur-parents who are working from home during “Shelter-in-place,” wild coyotes seem to be taking advantage of the suddenly empty streets of San Francisco.
KQED reports that coyotes are thought to be recolonizing the places that they used to inhabit before all the human residents came. In 2002, a coyote was seen in Presidio, thought to have been brought over from a trapper in the North Bay or maybe even making its way home over the Golden Gate Bridge. Since then coyotes numbers have continued to rise in the city over the recent years.
