The Carol Stream Police Department is asking that our residents refrain from feeding and approaching coyotes. Coyotes can be very aggressive. As residents, you may see more coyotes in the winter because there is less vegetation, giving them fewer places to hide and more snow, making animals easier to spot. It does not necessarily mean that they are growing in population. Visit our Village Website for some very helpful tips in dealing with coyotes. The website contains useful facts as well as local organizations that can help answer questions. http://www.carolstream.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=636:your-wild-neighbors-coexisting-with-coyotes&catid=121&Itemid=145
