BRYAN -- Some residents in south Bryan have had some unwelcome visitors lately... coyotes.

Because of the drought Bryan Animal Control says they've had more complaints about wildlife, specifically coyotes, pushing the boundaries and coming closer to city limits including people's backyards in search of food and water.

To help with the problem Bryan Animal Control has teamed up with the Texas Agrilife Services to help monitor the predators.

"If there's food, habitat and water the coyotes will be there," said Patti Stepp with the Bryan Animal Control. "It's just the way mother nature works so if we can minimize and limit some of those things that should help lower the number of encounters."

And Stepp says if you see a coyote roaming your neighborhood, don't try to approach it because it could be aggressive and carry diseases.

Go ahead and call animal control to handle the situation.
