Oh, now I get it – San Francisco-based Ant-Man, he’s just a little guy!
Some of the the time, anyway:
Boy, this looks like it’s the start of an extremely generic super-hero series.
But prove me wrong, Marvel.
Prove me wrong.
Get your 2015 coyote update from Hoodline.
Coyotes are small, brownish, wild dogs, basically. They run with their non-bushy tails held down.
Thusly, as seen on JFK Drive near the Bison Paddock, shortly before Fish and Game plumb blew this critter away, with a rifle:
Lots of people don’t notice them, cause they hide most of the time. And sometimes, off-leash dog people flush them out, with bad results…
But coyotes is harmless, despite what any SF Chronicle columnist from Walnut Creek might imply.
Years ago, I invited people to send in their photos of foxes and people only sent in photos of coyotes ID’ed as foxes, oh well. Moving on … to real foxes.
I’ll tell you, the Presidio has gray foxes, I understand, but I’ve never seen a gray fox.
Gray foxes belong in the bay area as a native species. OTOH, red foxes are exotics brought here for hunting.
The foxes seen over the years in GGP are all red, and they’re smaller than coyotes, and they run with their bushy tales held higher. Thusly:
As seen in GGP’s Strybing Arboretum, back before they changed their name and started charging admission:
This critter here was killed crossing over Crossover Drive, I believe, back in the aughts:
From about 175 feet away from the Primitive Garden in GGP. She’ll see you before you see her:
I haven’t seen the red foxes of GGP for a good long time. They took a hit when Rec and Park put out poison to kill vermin, like rats and mice.
Maybe I’ll never see a fox in Golden Gate Park ever again.
But coyotes, we’ve got tons of those. Just keep your pup on a leash and away from the coyotes and everything should be fine.
(Or simply tell the coyotes to “get the fuck out of here” – your choice.)
No these aren’t brand-new ShotSpotter gunfire detectors, as I initially thought.
They’re telemetry transceivers to give MUNI vehicles signal priority, per the Richmond District Blog:
Now here’s a shot from 2011 on Scott Street in the Western Addition – I don’t know what all this stuff is:
I don’t think any of them have anything to do with signal priority…
As seen on O’Farrell:

There’s no reason for me to read the actual bit, AFAIAC, ’cause I already don’t like our troubled CentralSubwayBigDigSubwayToNowhere.

Central T Subway: Connecting People, Connecting Communities, Giving Money to Dog Killers
BTW, here are the policies for the ridiculous Central Subway blog, you know, in case it gets a reader or commenter some day.
“Central Subway is Phase 2 of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (SFMTA) Third Street Light Rail Project. It will operate as an extension of the T Third line and will extend light rail service with a surface stop on 4th Street near Brannan Street, and subway service under the South of Market (SoMa), Union Square and Chinatown neighborhoods. The Central Subway project is a critical transportation improvement linking neighborhoods in the southeastern part of San Francisco with the retail and employment centers downtown and in Chinatown, and it will provide much needed and improved transportation to an under-served portion of the City.
The Central Subway Blog is monitored and maintained by the project’s Outreach Team.
