While the people are away, the wildlife will play. Lately, residents have gotten a few unwelcome guests. Wild coyotes in San Francisco are taking over the streets and beaches.\nOne local woman took to Twitter to post about her experience. "North Beach, Greenwich & Powell, San Francisco. Coyotes howling at almost midnight last week," she wrote on April 13.\nHer video showed a coyote stopping on a crosswalk on the street in front of her house and letting out a howl in the dark midnight air. As he howled, other coyotes joined in the chorus from nearby.\nIt's another good reason to stay indoors.\nAfter the city's stay-at-home order was announced, the coyotes have been coming out in droves. It's also pupping season right now, which could be another reason for their expanded presence.\nFrom the looks of things, these pack animals are making themselves at home all over the city. They're even walking around neighborhoods in the middle of the day.\nHowever, the video that's getting the most attention right now is a gray coyote taking advantage of coronavirus restrictions as he strolled along a local Marin Beach.\nHe even stops to stare at the Golden Gate Bridge.\nOUT FOR A STROLL: A coyote took advantage of coronavirus restrictions in San Francisco, roaming freely while the public remained mostly indoors, as authorities advised people not to feed or approach them. https://t.co/6EBG5bSEgn pic.twitter.com/Cs7DqdF00E— ABC News (@ABC) April 17, 2020\nWhile locals have remained mostly indoors, authorities have instructed residents not to approach or feed the animals.\nSan Francisco's stay-at-home order was updated on April 13.
