More and more people are spotting coyotes.

Suzanne Verhulst, wife of our Perspective editor, Jim, was walking their two collies at 11 a.m. on Thursday on a path by the lawn of the Masonic Home of Florida at 3201 1st St. NE in St. Petersburg, when she spotted the coyote in the above photo.

To be clear, she says, the coyote was not harming anyone. It just wanted to get out of the way of the dogs.

But it's just one of many in an uptick of sightings (or, more often, hearings) that are alarming some residents, especially those on Snell Isle.
