Coyotes in Your Neighborhood?

Coyotes have existed in the City of Aurora and the State of Ohio for many years. Coyotes are most visible in spring and fall, and appear more often at dawn and at dusk. They tend to be shy and avoid interaction with people but will defend their territory against intruding coyotes, foxes and dogs. Coyotes use a variety of ways to communicate with one another including howls, yelps, barks, growls and squeals, most often heard around dusk and dawn. Coyotes have an elongated snout and dark fur on their lower forelegs and travel with their bushy tail pointed down. The coyotes’ diet consists of mice, rabbits, small animals, fruit and trash. If you know that coyotes are in your area you should keep pets inside at night and use a leash when you take them outside. To discourage coyotes from visiting your property you should  remove food sources from yards, clean outdoor grills, accompany small children and pets outside and keep dogs on a leash. If coyotes are frequenting your property you can consider contacting a professional to have them trapped. You can also fend them off with loud noise or a garden hose sprayed in their direction.
