Dog killed by two coyotes.


Police say the dog’s owner was out shoveling and the dog was loose outside.


When the owner couldn’t find his dog, he walked over to the other side of the car parked in the driveway and found the dog. Two coyotes then apparently ran away from the dog — headed west.


The dog died as a result of injuries suffered in this incident.

Out of all the towns, cities, and municipalities we service, Vandalia, OH seems to have the largest population of coyotes and the most conflicts with coyotes.  We believe this is due to the geographic location of the city as its surrounded by two large parks; Taylorsville Reserve and Englewood Metropark. The coyotes flourish in these parks as they have no natural predators and hunting is not allowed.  These parks ecompass Vandalia from both the east and the west. Also on the north side of Vandalia sits Dayton International Airport, which also offers safe haven for coyotes as the Federal Aviation Association is not controlling their populations although we have heard of issues with coyotes on the airport runways. We have succesfully captured and removed many coyotes from Vandalia and farms outside city limits.  Most of the coyote complaint calls we receive are from the following Vandalia neighborhoods: Foxboro, Timberwinds, Stonequarry, and Brown School Rd areas.
