Coyote Spotted in Busy Kettering Neighborhood
KETTERING -- Is your cat or dog in danger from wild coyotes? A Kettering woman snapped cell phone pictures as one of the animals ran through her backyard on Bonnie Road.
"At first I thought dog," said Carol Piper. She said she was startled to see it because the coyote looked so out of the ordinary.
"It went kind of caddy corner here.. and I saw it from out picture window there," she said reenacting what she saw.
The encounter happened Friday afternoon in broad daylight, in her busy neighborhood off of Rahn Road.
"I do have a small dog and there are children and dogs in the neighborhood so it was concerning."
"Yeah that probably does startle some folks," said 5 Rivers Metroparks Naturalist Douglas Horvath, "If you have one then you have the conditions that they need to live."
Horvath says they have become more common and they aren't leaving neighborhoods any time soon.
"If you do have one living near you chances are you hardly ever see it and it's a good neighbor," Horvath said, "If we remove that good neighbor that coyote, another one is going to come in and take that spot."
Construction on nearby Wilmington Pike has recently removed acres of wooded area.
Carol Piper said she fears that's what drove the animal into her backyard, "I don't know if the trees being cut down just a couple blocks away from here maybe some of the wildlife are looking for a new refuge," she said.
"In general habitat has been declining," Horvath said, "Animals... if they have no habitat then they can't live there they disappear."
Horvath added that if you see a coyote in your neighborhood, it doesn't need to be trapped unless the animal is behaving aggressively.
