Warning for Small Pet Owners: Coyotes Coming

Cats, small dogs and other family pets are tempting, tasty, treats for bold coyotes

Warmer weather is bringing out more wildlife and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is warning property owners to keep an eye out for coyotes.

Schauer says coyotes can adapt to nearly any environment.
