With all this talk of coyotes in Glen Canyon, let's not forget that there are coyotes in McLaren Park as well.
Living on University/Dwight right across from the park, I've heard them at times howling at night, obviously in a pack.
My brother even saw one crossing Mansell one time up by Jerry Garcia Amphitheater.
I don't know when the attack on the dog was in Glen Canyon, but I think they are mainly nocturnal.
On top of coyotes, there are also feral dogs living in the park that have been released by people.
I've seen rottweilers and other big dogs roaming the park by themselves. Not to scare anyone,
but I have heard of attacks on people as well. This has only been on 2 or 3 occasions though
in 15+ years living there. Either way, stay alert! If anything, my biggest fear is getting sprayed
by a skunk!
