Coyote Sighting?

Did anyone else catch a glimpse of the coyote (?) running down Clybourn Ave this morning around 7:45 AM?

I was driving to work, heading South on Clybourn, and had just crossed over Ashland when I saw, what I thought was a coyote sprinting full-speed in the opposite direction. It was running on the sidewalk straight towards the busy Ashland / Fullerton / Clybourn intersection. As a dog owner, this has me concerned. Any other sightings?

  • My kids and I trailed one for a few blocks around Wells and Goethe last Thursday. It got chased by a German Shepard in the Franklin Fine Arts playlot on Wells and disappeared into the night. I called 311, but there is no way the response time of the animal control unit is fast enough to catch a coyote on the run.

  • Wendi on Maud Interested in local news

    Yes, I've seen it many times on Clybourn and in the alley behind our house on Maud....hunting for rats.
