Coyotes in our town?
PRINCETON — Coyotes may not be getting more aggressive, but they do appear to be getting braver and heading closer to residential areas.
In recent weeks, WQAD News 8 reporter Chris Minor reported on two separate incidents in Rock Island in which neighborhood dogs were attacked by coyotes. The Chicago Tribune has reported more than 2,000 coyotes live in Cook County with some of those living near neighborhoods and industrial facilities.
On Monday, Bureau County Animal Control Officer Scott Robbins said he wouldn’t say there are more coyote sightings this year than in other years in Bureau County, but coyotes do seem to be getting braver and coming closer to more residential areas. He has received several calls from concerned residents from all around the county, mostly from people living on the edge of communities.
