   Image title     Colorado Parks and Wildlife and other agencies are issuing a warning about coyotes.  "Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) wants to remind people to take precautions with their pets when living in coyote country," the warning says. "Several recent coyote attacks on unattended pets have taken place in private yards in, or near, your neighborhood."  It has been a more widespread problem it seems in the metro urban areas lately.  In recent years, There have been also sightings of bears and wolves in the city limits.

     Jennifer Churchill with CPW said there have been several incidents involving coyotes and pets between Bowles and Belleview and Wadsworth and Simms in Littleton.  "As it is breeding season, anyone with pets in the metro area should be diligent about protecting them from wildlife," Churchill told 7NEWS.

            CPW said people walking their dog are encouraged to be aware of their surroundings, to keep pets on leash, and to haze any coyote that gets too close to them or their pet. A coyote can jump a six-foot fence, avoid areas of thick vegetation and yell, clap your hands, blow a whistle, or wave your arms if you have a coyote encounter.
