In January of this year we had some coyotes in the forest behind us. Letters were written by other concerned residents and the Rochester Hills Council published a reply advising us that the coyotes were nature’s way of controlling deer and other forest creatures.
In conclusion, they advised us to keep our children and small pets indoors.
The council has an ordinance prohibiting the feeding of deer which they appear incapable of enforcing. They also have an ordinance prohibiting hunting in the city which I’m sure they would vigorously enforce.
So, we are seriously considering feeding the coyotes in the hopes that they will keep the deer from ruining our attempts to grow some flowers to beautify our home.
I trust that feeding coyotes is not in defiance of the council’s ordinances.
