Coyotes spotted in Villa Hills
Residents need to be cautious and watch small pets and children. If a coyote is spotted in the community or if you suspect coyote activity in your area, please make the Police Department aware of the issue. Wildlife issues are handeled by the Department of Fish and Wildlife. Accoridng to their webpage on coyotes:
"There are also non-lethal deterrents to coyotes. “Farmers can reduce coyote activity within pastures by putting fencing on gates and reinforcing existing fencing, to close holes,” said Patton.
In recent years, coyotes have made suburban areas their home, and are often observed in back yards, or prowling neighborhood streets during the night. To discourage coyotes from hanging around, keep pets and pet food inside during the night, and put trash secured in garbage cans.
For a fee, licensed nuisance wildlife operators will help landowners with problem coyotes. Search for a nuisance control operator in your area.
Suburban residents should take note that coyotes will kill and eat domestic cats, but Patton said attacks on small dogs are often related to territorial issues, than feeding."
