The SF Chronicle sent over an expedition, but couldn’t find it.
Here’s a recent capture, looks like:

Keep a look out.
How big is a Golden Gate Park coyote? About the size of a large house cat.
And hey, has anybody ever been injured by a coyote in San Francisco during the entire history of the universe? No.
OTOH, have off-leash dogs attacked peace officers and police horses in the 415? Oh yeah, I could tell you stories.

I’ll tell you, I was shocked when I found out that you could see dolphins while just walking about San Francisco.

Now I personally didn’t take any new shots this year, but here’s a roundup of the best shots from 2011 so far:

From Ft. Winfield Scott – jumping the other way
From the Golden Gate Bridge – see the shadow?
From the Golden Gate Bridge – bottlenoses
From the Golden Gate Bridge – at 200mm
From a boat – Pacific white-sided
From a boat – northern white whale dolphins
From a boat near the Farallones – Risso’s
Castro Street Fair – tattoo category (Uh, law school called – they want their diploma back)
That was 2011, now here’s yesteryear:

Keep a lookout for dolphins!
Well that’s it, no more surfing at Stinson Beach this week due to the recent sighting of a 8-10 foot great white shark.
But THIS is a far better Stinson Beach shark sighting, one from 2008, don’t you think? Compare the size of the birds with the size of the fish:
Now, speaking of sharks, this one isn’t, I don’t think:
