Was that howl from a bicycle wheel?

Image of bicyclist in front of coyote sign in San FranciscoMany cyclists in San Francisco--such as my wife pictured above--are excited by the return of the coyote to the city. Yes, coyotes have been spotted in the Presidio, an event one local naturalist compared to the second coming of Jesus.

I know this may not excite bike commuters in wildlife-dense rural areas. But for city dwellers, it's big news. Many people are motivated to commute by bicycle from a love for nature and a desire to preserve natural areas from asphaltization.
