Local Officials Issue A Warning After A Coyote Is Seen In One Lakes Area City
(Wahpeton)-- Residents in the area are being told to keep a close eye on their pets. Bonnie Tielbur is the City Clerk/Administrator in Wahpeton. She tells KUOO news a coyote was spotted in that town this (Monday) morning...
"There was a resident that called me this morning and he watched a coyote catch and kill a squirrel this morning, so he was very concerned about people's animals that they let outdoors."
Tielbur says the incident happened in the canals area shortly after dawn.
Wildlife experts say the extreme cold and a lack of food sources in the open may be driving more of the animals into populated areas right now.
