The Missouri Department of Conservation is warning pet owners to be on the lookout for Coyotes.   As a pet owner, you should not leave your dog, or cat unattended outside, especially in the county areas.

Coyotes are teaching their young how to hunt, and dogs especially, are looked upon on as a threat to their territory.

Keep trash covered.

The MDC suggests to be watchful of  your pets especially around dusk when coyotes are roaming.
