CPW warn residents as coyotes begin breeding

DENVER - Wildlife officials are warning Colorado residents to be aware of coyotes and the potential for conflicts during the next couple of months of breeding season.

The Denver Post reports Colorado Parks and Wildlife said in a news release that coyotes may become more territorial as they pair off and have their puppies.

A Centennial girl was nipped by a coyote during last year's breeding season. The department had also received reports about aggressive coyotes in Aurora and Lakewood.

Wildlife official Liza Hunholz said in a statement that pet owners should take extra care to protect their animals.
