As the weather grows colder, coyotes are popping up in suburban areas of the Miami Valley.

Mother Tracy Lynn took the video above Thursday morning, after noticing a coyote roam around near her child’s bus stop in Warren County.

“So glad we decided to drive to the bus stop today, we both thought it was a dog at first!” she wrote on a local Facebook group.

The coyote was spotted on the corner of Oak and Church streets in Kings Mills, about ten minutes from Kings Mills Elementary.

A wildlife expert from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources said coyotes in the Miami Valley are common, but attacks are rare.

“If you see a coyote, make loud noises, make yourself appear big, hold your ground until the coyote leaves the area,” Brett Beatty said. “That provides some negative stimulus.”
