Coyote Warning In North Hill Neighborhood

Got an email tip about coyotes being spotted in the North Hill neighborhood near 195th South and South 8th Avenue (map below), where we took this photo of a posted warning sign:

Hunting in 'PACKS'???

According to our BTB Tipster:

We live in North Hill.

My neighbor was out posting coyote warning  signs.

Apparently, she had one in her yard chasing their (not so small) dog around their yard one night.

I drive 509 everyday and since Feb. I have seen two killed along the freeway.

Also, I play softball at Showalter middle school and have seen alive ones there in broad daylight, on two occasions.

I’d just like to extend the warning to all our neighbors-Thanks!

Here’s a video shot last year of a coyote spotted in someone’s backyard nearby:

So if you live near the area, have small pets (or children), please be careful – coyotes are wild animals, and if they’re out hunting in packs they’re bound to be more bold.

    Coyotes ARE out there. And they are not all roaming around alone. A neighbor on Lake Burien recently lost a pet cat to coyotes. A man walking his dog pointed out that he saw two coyotes going down a nearby driveway toward the lake. If you sit quietly outside at night you can sometimes hear them barking (They seem to be calling one another.). They live in the gullies and also down in Seahurst Park.

    I live up the hill on Angle Lake. I have seen them in the woods near the park and crossing Pac Hiway.
    This may explain all the missing animal posters in the neighborhood.

    We live on 22nd Ave SW in Gregory Heights. A couple of weeks ago, we found our neighbor’s cat’s leg bones, collar and fur in our front yard. Yesterday at 6:15am, two coyotes were strolling down our street.

    PLEASE keep your pets indoors, or at the very least, don’t leave them outside to roam on their own.
