Tis the season of disappearing small pets – a warning
The coyotes in the Gig Harbor area have their pups in April and May. The new pups means that the coyote parents are looking for more food than before. Coyotes see cats and small dogs as a food source and frequently take them during the spring months.
Coyotes normally don’t approach humans although small children three years of age and younger have been attacked in California. Carefully monitor small children outdoors and keep small pets inside at night.
