Two Coyotes: Linda Flora & Chalon Road - 6:30AM

Please see below a note from a Bel-Air neighbor:

Around 6:30AM Saturday the Feb 18th a neighbor was out walking on Linda Flora just near the John Thomas Dye school when she spotted 2 coyotes about 50 ft away from her walking towards her in the street. Worried for herself and three dogs, she quickly turned around and headed home. The coyotes began to follow her for several houses until a car drove by scaring them both away.

All is well, no pets or people were injured, but thought it was important to share so neighbors could be alert.
