Be aware of the dangers of coyotes in Kirkland | Letter
At approximately 2 a.m. Sunday morning I looked out a window to see about a noise I heard. There was what at first looked like a dog in my front garden. It quickly jumped over a small fence back towards the street on 106th Avenue Northeast.
I went outside and made a whistling sound to get its attention. The animal stopped in the street and it was then that I realized this wasn't a dog. Having seen coyotes before, I knew that was what was in front of me. Suddenly a second coyote came running down the street from the south on 106th Avenue Northeast. Both of the coyotes disappeared as I grabbed a camera and drove down the street in an effort to photograph one.
I noted seeing two wild rabbits cross the street as I looked for the coyote, no doubt one of the meals of choice.
I’d like some type of warning issued to this area so people are aware of the dangers to their pets. I've reported this to both the Kirkland Police Department and Washington State Fish & Wildlife.
