Coyote sighted in Bradenton neighborhood in March 2013

Very sorry to hear about Tuffy! Donna Martin's actions in the wake of the coyote's seizing her small dog were exactly right: yelling at a coyote often frightens it into dropping a pet or running away. Coyotes usually are very shy of humans.--- What is unclear is whether Tuffy was alone and what time of day the incident occurred. A small pet should always be supervised when outside, especially at night, dawn and dusk. Don't let your dog out and go back to watching a TV show! ---Also, do a quick check of your yard before putting a pet outside, clapping your hands and speaking in a loud voice to scare wildlife away. This is as much for the sake of the wildlife as your pet.---Check projectcoyote.org (founded by wildlife scientists) for more good tips.
Be prepared for more of this with your NO KILL. As you release spayed cats back into the neighbourhoods to become food for these coyotes they will get more aggressive and grow in numbers small children will be next.
