Recently residents have reported seeing coyotes around their neighborhoods. Although coyotes are most active in the early evening through early morning hours, some residents have also reported seeing them out in the middle of the day.
Follow these tips to keep your family and pets safe and discourage wildlife from visiting your yard:
* Never intentionally feed wildlife.
* Wildlife is attracted to an easy meal; don't leave pet food or water outside, especially at night.
* Bring your pets inside before dark. Shut pet doors at dusk.
* Secure the lids of your outdoor garbage cans.
* Pick up fallen fruit from the ground nightly. Pick fruit when it's ripe.
* Fence or net areas that you wish to protect.
* Clear away woodpiles and brush piles after the winter. Keep vegetation near the house neatly trimmed.
* Close access to crawl spaces, attic, shed and garage spaces. Keep all doors closed at night.
* Cap or screen off your chimney to keep animals from falling in or building nests in the chimney.
* Keep barbecues clean and inside the garage.
* Keep compost in locked containers.
