I just received this email from the City of St Louis Park stating that there have been several Coyote sightings in the area. If you have a smaller dog please make sure they are always supervised when they are outside as they are the highest risk. More information can be found on the city website. Below is some of the information that was in the email.
Coyotes in urban areas are not a new phenomenon, but recently there have been several coyote sightings in St. Louis Park and unfortunately a small dog was recently killed by a wild animal. The City’s website has information on dealing with coyotes: http://www.stlouispark.org/keeping-informed/coyotes-are-among-us.html. The attached articles can also be found in that website article.
