At the Feb. 11 Village of Dousman Board Meeting, an agenda item regarding coyotes stood out among other business related bullet points.
According to Village President Jack Nissen, there have been increased reports of coyote sightings in urban areas. This includes one report that a group of coyotes killed a fawn during the day in the northern end of the city.
Nissen is urging residents to take caution, especially with pets.
"We would just like residents to know that they need to take cautionary measures," Nissen said. "They should not let dogs loose or even have them tied up outside for an extended period of time. That’s like bait for a coyote."
The same goes for cats and other small pets. Residents should also be especially sensitive to picking up trash and monitoring compost piles where coyotes often find food.
