Coyotes worry Bath Township residents

by WKSU's KAREN SCHAEFER


Reporter

A type of wildlife new to this region is troubling some residents of Bath Township near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and state and local officials have scheduled a public meeting. Wildlife officials say coyotes are in all 88-Ohio counties. That worries some parents with small children and pets who are spotting the animals in their backyards.

New York Times, March 22, 2006: Elusive coyote is captured in Central Park

Listener Comments:

I find this interesting as I raise chickens in the township and just heard my first coyote "howling". At first I thought a little girl was hurt in the park as it sounded like a little girl screaming. Then I noticed multiple cries from more than one animal and realized this was no human. It sent chills down my spine as I've never heard anything like it, all the dogs in the neighborhood were barking and it seemed to fuel the coyote's howls.

Jeff.
