Recently, in the core neighborhoods of Seattle, there has been an uptick in the population (or at least sightings) of coyotes. There's a site dedicated to tracking them. If you look at the larger map that links from the site, you can see the high concentrations of sightings east of I-5, north of I-90 and south of SR520. That area (Madrona, Madison Valley, North Captiol Hill, Interlaken Park) is apparently a nice haven for coyotes, and it's barely 2-3 miles outside the downtown core.
Recently there's been a coyote spotted in my neighborhood. This one apparently likes the taste of Magnolia Domesticated House Cat. Fortunately, the city asked the Fish & Wildlife Service to leave the little guy (gal?) alone.
