Sioux Falls Animal Control is advising residents to keep an eye on their pets after a coyote took a small dog this weekend.
Police say the coyote took the dog around 6:15 a.m. Saturday on North Galaxy Lane in northwestern Sioux Falls. Animal Control has been monitoring the situation and has implemented several measures to scare and trap the coyote.
Authorities say Sioux Falls residents should keep small pets on a 6-foot leash and monitor their pets while they are outside. Anyone who sees a coyote should use hazing techniques to scare them off, such as yelling and waving your arms, making loud noises or throwing rocks or sticks.
