Sacramento State had a wild visitor on Thursday, Nov. 1, a coyote who wandered in from the American River Parkway and checked out surprised students enjoying a warm day on the Quad. Biology Professor Ronald Coleman said coyotes are not uncommon in the area but generally remain in the habitat along the American River. Expressing a certain delight at the coyote’s bold foray onto campus, Coleman also said that though they are generally harmless to humans, they should not be approached or cornered. He also cautioned the campus community to refrain from feeding the animals. Sac State is familiar with wildlife, over the years playing host to mountain lions, turkeys, skunks, rattlesnakes, and a healthy population of squirrels.
