According to the website CoyoteSmarts.org, we are approaching coyote mating season (January-March) and that most sightings during this time do not warrant a response. Metro Detroit wildlife communications coordinator for the Department of Natural Resources, Holly Vaughn told the Free Press in May that yes, there have been sightings, but there have not been any incidents or dangerous encounters.
"Give the coyote plenty of space and they’ll do the same to you," Vaughn advised. "Don’t try to pet it, don’t try to touch it. Just let it be.’
