Will coyotes or bobcats hurt my children?

Coyote attacks are very rare. According to Humane Society, more people are killed by errant golf balls and flying champagne corks each year than are bitten by coyotes. If you notice urban wildlife acting sick or unusually aggressive, call Allen Animal Control at 214.509.4378 to report. According to 911 Wildlife, there are no documented cases of wild bobcats attacking children.
