“Last summer, Courtney Jarvis gave up on her walks with her twin daughters when the sun came down. She had heard too many stories of her neighbors in Margate spotting coyotes.
On Thursday she got her first glimpse of one as she drove to work, slowing to photograph the animal who seemed to pose before he trotted back off into the bushes in the area near Southgate Boulevard and State Road 7.
“I came around the corner, and thought, oh, someone’s dog got out,” She said. “And the closer I got, I saw his ears and the bushy tail, and said, ‘Oh no, that’s not a dog.’”
Margate Vice Mayor Tommy Ruzzano said the long-standing problem in his city has never gone away. He said he believes his own cat fell victim to a coyote in November.”
