Nature is taking back San Francisco as coyotes are seen running wild through the streets.
While many countries have been circulating fake news stories about elephants in China or dolphins in Venice, Coyotes running wild in a California metro area is more than just a scene out of “Collateral.”
The predatory animals are actually pretty common in cities, but are rarely seen walking around without a care in the world.
With the two-week-and-counting lockdown, however, the critters have become more courageous.
On Monday, Twitter user @manishkumar457 shared a photo of a coyote trotting down the sidewalk.

“Coyote on the streets of San Francisco during the coronavirus shelter in place order,” he wrote.
Others reported seeing them in their yards, neighborhoods and parks.
“I went for a walk for fresh air and a group of women called out to me,” tweeted Christina Farr. “They had spotted a pack of sleeping coyotes in the middle of (usually busy) San Francisco.”
Nature always finds a way.
So last night I walk outside after finishing work and I see this. Not one but two coyotes scurrying down the city street. A couple months ago a coyote was recorded on this same street with a rat in it’s mouth. I’m hoping these two had rats and mice for dinner! @kron4news pic.twitter.com/fiK2ClPsmx
