An 8-year-old Chesterfield Township boy spotted a coyote jumping the fence in his family’s backyard last weekend, several news organizations reported.
Third-grader Blake Cameron told Fox 2 Detroit he was eating in the kitchen when he saw the coyote outside of the home and alerted his mother. She was able to capture video footage of the coyote jumping over the family’s 6-foot fence to get out of the yard.
Coyotes are common throughout Michigan and abundant in areas where adequate food, cover and water are available, according to the Department of Natural Resources. They are more likely to be seen and heard from January to March, when breeding takes place.
The DNR urges residents to never intentionally feed or try to tame coyotes. If you see a coyote in your area, officials recommend trying to scare it off by yelling, clapping or making other loud noises, as most coyotes are naturally afraid of people and will leave if frightened.
