On Friday, November 17th, 2017, a coyote was spotted at Balboa Park, and later the same day at 203 Cotter St.
Coyotes are part of the ecosystem here in San Francisco, and it's not uncommon for them to be seen traveling between larger parks, such as McLaren Park and Glen Park just to the east and northwest of Mission Terrace. This story in SFGate talks about their history and the reasons behind coyote policies in our city.
Here is further information from SF's Animal Care & Control, about how what to do when you see a coyote.
