Halloween is supposed to be spooky, but we don’t want anyone actually getting hurt.
In the past few days, several Coyote sightings have been reported in the Charlotte area. The North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission says this is the time of the year to expect more coyotes. They say the sightings shouldn’t be a huge concern for trick or treaters as the animals usually do not cause a big threat to people.
Interestingly enough, I’ve never seen or hear a Coyote myself until this past weekend. Granted, I was in Bald Head Island, but I was woken up by the sounds of a pack of coyotes howling. It was terrifying!
The NC Wildlife Resource Commission says coyotes have adapted to city life, and are often in neighborhoods more now because of that, but the good news is that they usually avoid people. However, if you have smaller pets of animals that you leae alone outside, you might want to watch out for them.
If you do happen to see a coyote, do not cause a commotion, as that could cause them to act aggressively.
As for now, bring your pes, and their food inside to keep them safe.
