We've been hearing a lot of chatter on our Facebook page about coyote sightings lately so we decided to put together a map based on our readers' reports.
- Take a moment to appreciate "this beautiful and elusive animal." Keep in mind that coyotes are not generally a threat to people. Small dogs? Now that's another story.
- If the coyote comes toward you, yell, wave your arms or throw something at it. Most will run away.
- If the coyote doesn't run away and you feel it poses a danger, call 911.
