Coyote sightings in LaPlace neighborhood

July 22, 2018 - 12:19 pm

A number of coyote sightings have been reported in In LaPlace this summer. 

A 20 pound dog was bitten by a coyote last Saturday, and one resident thinks coyotes have been eating pets.

At least one cat has disappeared.
 
Residents estimate that a dozen or so are roaming the area. It's possible a den may be near the neighborhood around Sleepy Redwood, which has a few wooded spots.

Local officials are looking into the possibility of bringing in a trapper.

Wildlife officials are advising residents not to leave out any food or garbage that might attract area coyotes.
