CoyoteWith the weather getting nicer and people being outdoors more, Northville Public Safety has been receiving a few calls about coyotes in the area from residents.

For your safety, NEVER intentionally feed or try to tame coyotes. Eliminate outside food sources (garbage or pet food left out may draw their attention), keep small pets indoors or accompany them outside and keep them on a leash and if you see a coyote in your area, try to scare it off by yelling, clapping or making other loud noises. Most coyotes are naturally afraid of people and will leave if you frighten them. If you are having an issue, the DNR can assist. 

Here is some contact information and additional tips on how to handle coyotes in urban areas.
