Coyotes spotted on 53rd and 54th Avenues

Neighbor Jenny Ditty reports recent coyote sightings:
I have been sighting coyotes in the neighborhood at night, usually around 10pm. They are on elkins between 53rd and 54th heading into sylvan park--beware of the danger to cats and small dogs.
Please be aware that coyotes are not generally a threat to humans, but Jenny is right that it is wise to keep smaller pets indoors during evening hours. Polly Rooker with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency visited SPNA in 2006 and shared other helpful tips about dealing with animals in urban settings.

  1. I'm not crazy! I saw one two weeks ago around 11:30 p.m. on Sentinel near 38th.
