Coyotes reportedly attacking pets in Santa Rosa Shores neighborhood

Navarre Press

The president of the Santa Rosa Shores Homeowners Association has reported that multiple cats have gone missing recently and were later found mutilated. A resident caught on camera a young coyote in their yard. Residents in the area are being advised to supervise their pets when they are outside and to keep garbage in the cans and do not leave any pet food outdoors.

Coyotes are subject to rabies, too. Seems that would be a big concern in such a population-dense environment, too.

Before moving into our new home in Niceville we were staying in a vacation rental on Boggy Bayou. My husband saw an odd animal that was shaped like a coyote and had the eyes but was nearly without fur. Couple of days later there was an article in the Northwest Florida Daily News about the coyote sightings and it mentioned a skin disease affecting them. We saw the coyote several times in the evenings and then heard he had been caught. We've also seen wild boar near our neighborhood. Keep your eyes open...never know what critter you will see here in beautiful Northwest Florida!

A co-worker said they have been having issues on Okaloosa Island with disappearing cats and rabbits. He bought a game camera and on the first night, got a pic of what looks like to be a coyote...

Very adaptable animals...

Time to bring out the cages and catch them and re-release them back deep in Eglin property.
