coyote spared! for at least another week.

The infamous coyote of Discovery Park, having already evaded leg traps, has now swayed enough public support in its favor that the U.S. is giving it another week to roam the park, threaten kittens, and approach the homes on the Naval base.

Here’s the latest from Seattle Parks & Rec spokesperson Joelle Ligon:

“Once we know something about it, if it is sick or aggressive, then we will make a plan to protect humans. We have no reason now to believe it is a danger to humans. … If you are visiting the park, your dog should be on a leash. If you live in or near the park and have a cat, we strongly recommend that your animal be an inside pet, not just for your pet’s safety, but the safety of smaller animals that your pet might prey on, like songbirds.” [p-i]

Sounds like sensible advice even if there wasn’t a brazen and fearless coyote on the premises.
