THE COYOTES ARE HERE...THE COYOTES ARE HERE!

All summer long we have been hearing about and reading stories of the coyotes up in The Brooks communities in Bonita Springs. They have boldly attacked small dogs while on a walk with their owners, and in some cases, the dogs have broken free of their leashes or backed out of their collars and were chased down by the coyotes, caught and dragged away.
Fish and game representatives can do nothing, so communities are forced to hire private trappers. Despite the minor success the trappers have had in the Bonita and Estero area, the coyotes are here to stay.
A few months ago, there was a report of a coyote that was filmed in East Naples by a homeowner as the coyote tried to get at a cat it had treed. The cat eventually fell out of the tree and was promptly dragged off by the coyote.
Lately coyotes have been spotted in the Moorings primarily off Regatta Road. Police have confirmed that there have been four reports of sightings, which means that they are now in more urban areas. It is prudent that people be warned so that they can keep an eye on their small children and family pets.
