Fine, even though I'm sure this is Subby's intention, I'll bite:

It's Moraga, California, not Moraga Street in San Francisco.  Unless there's a coyote attacking people at the Sunset Rec Center.

This coyote does not GAF.
Probably having a ball watching these bi-pedal people howl and squeal when it bites them.

I always thought it was "If they capture you you're through" but I'm remembering from an 8 year old sugary cereal addled mind here.

Well, not specifically at the rec center.

A few years ago, when I was living in my car in LA, I was walking down the sidewalk and saw a huge dog walking the other way across the street. Then I realized it was a coyote, and I stopped to take a closer look, as I was not wearing my glasses. The coyote also stopped at the same time, seemingly ignoring me, and after a few minutes determining it actually was a coyote, then a few admiring it, I continued on my way. The coyote continued on at the same time I did.

I felt a weird connection with this wild creature so completely out of its element, just a few miles from Disneyland. One of those "Woah... that's ME" moments. (I'm not really a coyote; it was a time slip from the Overmind)

A couple weeks later I met a city worker at a park running along the river there. He said it was fairly common for wild coyotes to follow the river out of the mountains and into the suburbs. But he told me I was never in any danger, because they are typically only interested in hunting "cats and poodles".

I guess the coyote thought I looked too tough and stringy to eat. So it goes.

Yeah the Park, man you could get bit by a coyote, a raccoon, a human - anything goes in there

Plus you'd probably fight back...most of the people around here carry big sticks or golf clubs when they walk their dogs. I prefer a nice old putter with a nice heavy head. Swing it right and itll put a hole in just about anything. I drew the line at a machete and put a fishing pole in the golf bag, good times and good bass fishing when it got too dark to see where your drive went. Followed by a march to the clubhouse for a pitcher of brew and a patty melt...

Coyotes can completely lose their fear of humans. I once had one come up behind me and sniff my pants. I could have reached back and grabbed it by the ears. However, that wouldn't have been very smart. And I've heard that the rabies shots hurt like hell.

Worse problem. More people are killed by other people with guns hunting coyotes than by coyotes.

FYI. You have nice Berber carpet.
Showing a gun is never is a positive thing, unless it is a gun thread never show a gun.
Paper targets and clay targets, very fun and no killing.
So this is from 1977. Just to get your attention.

You didn't hear? The coyotes took over SF last year. Old news.

Contrary to popular belief, coyotes (and most predators) don't have a natural fear of humans.

They commonly have an acquired fear of humans because humans are normally loud and aggressive.

When humans get in the habit of freezing and being quiet so as to better observe the beauty of nature, they're acting exactly like something delicious.

Situation: out of very many, there is one coyote in the Bay area who has decided that it is prudent to haze humans who are not wary enough.  Most keep their distance but some people seem too tame plus confident while maybe not formidable enough to back it up.  In one coyote's lifetime experience. So it decides to haze them. Give them a bite, then run. As far as it knows, it works.  Except on the woman who flapped the scary blanket.  Too formidable
