Kim Oksenberg took several photos of the coyote around 8 a.m. She tells ABC7 that the coyote was initially alone but it was joined by its partner a few minutes later.

According to Larkspur based "Project Coyote," pups that were born in April are now branching out and looking for their own areas - so you may see more in open space and green areas. They warn that dog owners should keep animals on a leash and pick up small dogs if you see a coyote in the area.
