Late-Night Coyote Sighting on Temescal

A Palisades resident spotted a coyote late Monday night while driving.

A Palisades resident reported seeing a coyote on Temescal Canyon Road between Sunset Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway at about 11:30 p.m. Monday.

The resident said she was driving toward Sunset on Temescal when she saw the coyote about a quarter mile away from . She said it took its time crossing the street.

It was too dark to snap a photo, but it seems the coyote may have just been out for a midnight stroll.

Although they once lived mostly in open areas such as prairies and deserts, coyotes can now be found in areas like Los Angeles, according to National Geographic. Its website notes coyotes adapt well to changing environments.

Coyotes are crossing Temescal Canyon all the time at night. It's a zoo- there's skunk, deer, coyotes and opossums.

At 5:00am Thursday morning on the way to LAX, we saw a coyote in front of the fire station. He was in the middle of the road and seemed lost. We forget how close we are to the conservancy until you see a coyote on Sunset!

Just went out to get the papers and saw one on El Medio Ave (the 500 block). I thought it had passed and went out to the street but it had gone up the nieghbor's drive. It saw me and started to come towards me. I ran back into the house & told my husband. We went back out to get the last paper and it was STILL there but this time hassling a lady wakling her small pooch...

I saw one on Sunday about 6PM walking up Las Lomas like it didn't have a care in the world.
