Coyotes Popping Up In Beavercreek Neighborhood
BEAVERCREEK - You may have seen them around, coyotes are becoming a big nuisance in one Beavercreek neighborhood, after a family pet was viciously attacked.
Officials with the Ohio Division of Wildlife say food is the number one thing that draws these wild animals to your backyard. The neighborhood association of Kings Gate actually sent out an email to residents warning them of their presence after that dog attack that left the animal with serious head wounds.
"They are very thin, they're not eating well, I can tell you that," said Renee Targgart, who's family has been living in Beavercreek for 11 years and says lately the coyotes have been an issue.
"Actually it makes me feel real nervous for my young kids and my dog," Targgart explained.
She's been keeping a close eye on her kids while he played football with other kids in the neighborhood Saturday afternoon, because just days ago, the family saw a coyote wandering right in front of their home.
"It's not even at different times of the day, we've seen them real early in the morning and we've seen them real late at night," Targgart said.
Allstate Animal control in Beavercreek say calls from the Kings Gate area have been coming into the office regarding coyotes.
"Actually it's becoming more and more common coyotes are becoming more and more adapted to living in an urban environment as opposed to living out in the farm land," said Matthew Hunt, State Wildlife Officer. "They're an opportunistic feeder so if they are working their way along a fence row and out jumps a rabbit and they feel hungry they'll go after the rabbit."
The Ohio Department of Wildlife say these animals are drawn to enticing smells. They are also attracted to dirty grills and food left in the trash.
"Make sure your trash is picked up things that might attract a coyote or other animals coons, possums, things like that to your yard, water sources or food sources make sure those kind of things are picked up," said Hunt.
If coyotes are a problem in your neighborhood, contact your local animal control organization.
