Coyotes Spotted: 1100 Block of Bel-Air Road & Sandal Lane-area

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

I have seen coyotes on several occasions recently on the streets near my home.

Late last night (3/7) one ran in front of my car and then into the hillside on the east side of the 1100 block of Bel Air Road.

I also saw one late at night on 3/1 lounging on the street at the corner of Sandal Lane and Duluth Lane. The coyote fled when approached.

Residents of the Sandal Lane area frequently hear a pack of several coyotes howling at night. It is an ongoing problem.
