Coyote spotted on Woodruff (near Holmby) - Picture Included

Please see below a report from a Bel-Air neighbor:

I was walking on Woodruff, approaching Holmby (and Warner Elementary School) at 9 a.m. Sunday morning. I and 2 friends were walking on the sidewalk. This coyote was approaching us walking down the middle of Woodruff, walking confidently and looking well-fed. It looked to be about the size of a small German shepherd. It stopped twice to look back over its shoulder at us. It did not appear at all afraid of us. I thought you might be interested to hear of this sighting so far down from the hillside and with half a block of a public school.


In addition to notifying our Bel-Air resources at, please report ALL coyote or aggressive wildlife sightings to West Los Angeles Animal Services @ 310-207-3156 to file a "Wildlife Sighting Report."

      [Tell them Officer Randall (the Officer in charge of our area) asked specifically that Bel-Air is to make, and the Shelter is to accept, phone reports.]

     You would file this report whether it was a mountain lion or a coyote.
