Two coyotes gallop through Lakeview snow in video

January 21, 2014|By Mick Swasko, @swasko | RedEye

Look out, Lakeview!

A video posted Monday evening shows two coyotes trouncing through fresh snow in the Lakeview neighborhood. We'll withhold judgement on the vertical video (HORIZONTAL, people, HORIZONTAL) because the galloping urban coyotes were captured so well otherwise. 

We reached out to the original YouTube poster for more information on exactly what part of Lakeview these wild animals might be lurking.

UPDATE: YouTube user Cody Sykes gives more detail: 

"I took the video last night around 11pm at the corner of Ravenswood and Byron.  I first noticed the coyotes because I thought I was watching a dog chase a rabbit but realized it was actually a coyote.  The coyotes ended up galloping east down Byron and I lost sight of them when they crossed Ashland.  They ran together as a pair down the middle of the sidewalk!"
