Representatives from Amberley Village, including Village Manager Scot Lahrmer, and Police Officers Chris Fritsch and Nick Mercer, recently attended a conference regarding wildlife in urban settings. Of particular interest this time of year is the importance of cohabitating with coyotes during their mating season, which typically occurs from late January through March.
Take a moment to learn more about coyotes in the domestic landscape. You’ll be surprised to know they are extremely adaptable, which is why you see them more and more during the day. It’s not necessarily that there are more coyotes; they are just adapting to their less-nocturnal surroundings!
