Kansas Coyote Attacks Becoming More Frequent

In recent years, coyotes have been appearing more frequently in urban and suburban settings, putting them in closer contact with humans. Kansas wildlife specialist Charlie Lee works for Kansas State University's research and extension office.

Lee says coyotes have also been spotted during daylight hours in and around children's play areas. While attacks on humans are rare, the danger remains. Lee thinks many coyotes have simply lost their fear of humans. 
The best way to protect pets from coyotes is to fence in the animals or bring them in at night.
