The Wild Coyotes of Forest Hill Extension – As Seen on the Fourth of July – COYOTE CROSSING, Indeed

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

I’ll vouch for the coyote part of this photo showing the poor critter wandering the early morning Streets of San Francisco, but I won’t vouch for the sign being there IRL.

In either event, this is How We Live Now in urban Frisco, where urban Laguna Honda is Coyote Country:

Looks that way.

Now back in the day, they’d let you linger after closing hours, but no longer. So you now can’t see the frolicking skunks of after-hours at the JTG

Oh well, that’s Progress for you.

So, just logically here, uh, ergo:

Do people park their cars on the left and right lanes of Bush in the Western Addition for like six hours at a stretch on weekends?
