Coyote in Alameda (NE Portland)

This week several neighbors on NE 32nd Avenue in Alameda have spotted a coyote wandering the streets. Friday afternoon the coyote was back again. It was seen on a driveway and sitting in the middle of the street before heading north onto NE Bryce.

I just lost my cat to coyotes. We found him this afternoon & he had been dead for a few days. We live on 19th in Westmoreland. Do not be mistaken, keep your kitties inside at night and until later morning. I am devastated.

Just saw a coyote at the corner of 17th and Klickitat. Keep those cats inside or they will become a meal.

We saw a coyote on Tuesday Nov 23 on NE 17th and Klickitat. My 6 yr old cat has been missing since that day. She has a kitty door to go in and out and has always stayed in the yard. These coyotes are hungry. Its not funny if it is your cat.

I just got home from work and one ran off through my front yard when it saw me coming. It headed west down Alameda Street. Keep your dogs and cats inside! This one was smaller than the one we saw this weekend near Willshire Park.

I saw it when I was out running on Sunday, near 27th and Alameda. There was a squirrel chattering at it very loudly. When I passed by, it just looked at me and ambled off. It certainly did not seem threatening; in fact it was very cool.

To KG -- 34th and what cross street? I wonder if they are getting squirrels in the park?

We live on NE 45th and Brazee and our 11 year old Ragdoll cat has been missing for several days. She has never wandered from our home. I'm truly hoping that a coyote didn't get her!

I have seen them twice in the northeast neighorhood. Once coming up on ne 33rd and the intersection of fremont (this was practicall the size of a puppy, but their gait is what i would describe as skiddish). Second, at Wilshire Park at noc.

I have seen a large coyote several times in the past few years near NE Alameda and 20-21st -- there is a hole in the bushes he uses. I see him late in the night, our last sightings were spring 2010. Also a couple HUGE racoons just north of Alameda.

We live in Woodland, WA. We see coyotes every morning and sometimes during the day. We have cats that go outside but, not before 11 in the morning and are in by 4 PM. We have not lost 1 in over 15 years. Coyotes are not much dangerous than loose dogs

They come through The Mt. Scott and Johnson creek area a couple of times a year. I got a picture of them this year on Sept 23rd. Curiously, not too far apart from when the deer move through as well.

I live in Westmoreland and there were two cats on our block killed during the same week last summer. Last Tuesday at 3:08 a.m., I was standing in our kitchen and saw two coyotes run across our front yard and down 19th street.

We see coyotes regularly around the NE 181st/San Rafael business area, by the Albertson's distribution warehouse and hotels, at night. There appears to be a couple and sometimes the whole family comes out.
