Coyotes cross between parks. Not always well.

Saw this alert sign today near woodlands in the Presidio, which is on the north side of the busy Richmond District while Golden Gate Park, also coyote territory, runs south of it.

So J. wondered if coyotes might cross between the two parks on the green strip along Park Presidio. And then we realized they would have to cross streets.

Looked it up and, unfortunately, yes, there's a February 2011 report of a coyote chased by a dog and killed by a car on Park Presidio. Commenters to the neighborhood blog item about it reported many other sightings including dens on the Presidio golf course and behind the Legion of Honor art gallery.
