Coyote Population Growing Around Ohio Cities


(24/7 News) -- Wildlife officials are warning Ohio residents following an increase in the number of reported coyote sightings in urban areas.

.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has issued a statement saying the increase at this time of year is not unusual as the animals are in the middle of a breeding season which lasts from late December until early March.

.

The ODNR says coyotes at this time of year are more active during the day, and there is not as much natural foliage to camouflage them in the winter.

.

Coyotes can present a danger to small pets and in Ohio, it is legal to hunt them year-round.
