There have been sightings of Coyotes in the area. Coyotes may come out at any time of day or night. A number of factors encourage coyotes to interact with humans including: people leaving out food for animals and the presence of unenclosed refuse containers.
Coyotes are wild animals. Do not encourage or approach them. They are smart, fast, and will take what they can get.
Cats should be kept indoors at all times. Dogs must be kept under direct supervision and restrained on a chain or leash, not exceeding 6 feet in length, while being walked in any public area.
NEVER FEED COYOTES
