WESTLAKE-Drivers in Westlake encountered what appeared to be a family of coyotes this morning.
Our reporter, Maia Belay, spotted the coyotes on Ranney near Bassett close to Crocker Road around 9 a.m. Monday.
Maia said, one of the coyotes was in the road, while the other two were in the grass.
Animal control said the best precaution to take right now is to make sure you don't have any pet food supplies of any kind stored outside accessible to coyotes. Keep pets inside and protected.
If you see a coyote, make some noise -- clap and shout; they'll often just run away.
