TriCities family finds coyote curled up in their kitchen

Lately there has been quite a bit of discussion locally about coyote and possible large cat activity in and around the Trafton, Jim Creek Road and the Arlington Heights area. Larger litters could be the cause for the most recent activity, thus attracting larger predators like the big cats and quite possibly even bears.

Seems that we aren’t as exclusive in our wildlife visitor-ship as we might have thought. Imagine waking up one morning and finding this under your dining room table.

A family in Kennewick made a surprising find on Monday – a young coyote curled up on the floor inside their home according to KEPR-TV.

According to the report, officers responded to the residence on Klamath Avenue, where they found the wild creature curled up in a kitchen corner, uninjured but a little scared.

Police say it appears the coyote snuck into the house through the back door.

With the assistance of local wildlife control personnel, the coyote was captured without injuries to it, the homeowner, or officers.

Officials say the young coyote was taken away and released in a nearby sagebrush area, where they believe its mother will find it.
