I SAW A COYOTE.......A COYOTE!...IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA IN FAIRFAX VA. Very populated. I was shocked didn't expect to see one around here. You could tell by the cowering way it loped. Even vultures are coming back...think they are turkey vultures who congregate along a main highway running right down the middle of the wealthiest most populated counties in Northern VA: Fairfax County. I read a lot that the bears and Mountain Lions encroaching in ever increasing numbers into the residential areas in LA and San Diego causing real concerns for residents. They steal pets and have even attacked joggers and trail hikers. People with little children have to be ever vigilant. Over development and over population in their mountain/hill areas and the fires around these areas are forcing the poor animals into the valleys and people habitats. They are all over the place sneaking around at night foraging/hunting.
