Coyote And Fox Sighting In Neighborhood

The Laurelhurst Blog received this information yesterday:
I just saw a coyote running south on 42nd Avenue NE turning west on NE Surber Drive heading towards Yesler swamp about 7pm last night. 
I had a clear look at it it was very definitely a coyote.  My wife reminded me about us hearing a coyote howling a few days ago after hearing a siren. 
No photos as it was too dark. I am certain it is a coyote. It was very skinny with long legs, maybe 30 lbs. I got the impression it is quite young. Light brown with long nose and pointed ears.  
My wife and I heard it ululating in response to a siren a few days ago. It sounded like it was just south of the Urban Horticulture Field House.

And on January 8th a Blog reader sent this information:
Do we have any pictures or stories about the Red Fox that ran across my path this morning  on the main trail through the Union Bay Forest?   
I was on my bike and he went across the trail in a shot. No time to get out my phone.

Saw the same coyote running across the median on the Boulevard today. Pretty small. Headed towards the park.
