Macedonia Police warns residents of Coyotes

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Macedonia Police responds to growing concern of Coyotes in the city.

February is the peak month of mating season for Coyotes, and males can be very aggressive during this time of year.

The City of Macedonia recommends residents to use hazing methods to discourage coyotes. The city believes this is the appropriate action.

Hazing methods can help maintain coyotes fear of humans and can deter them from backyards.

The city also believes the alpha male is responsible for the attacks on several pets and has lost its fear of humans.
