Coyote sighting reported in the Bronx

Landscapers working at 4550 Livingston Ave. say they spotted a coyote in the neighborhood yesterday.

Coyotes are known to prey on small animals and even small children. The owner of the home, who has two small children, was alerted immediately.

Coyote sightings have become more common in the past few years. Some say they have been driven to heavily wooded neighborhoods because of land development where they once lived.
