VIDEO: Coyote seen hopping 6-foot fence in Pecan Grove

PECAN GROVE, Texas – Recent coyote sightings are worrying some Houston-area residents.

Video recorded Tuesday shows a coyote hopping a six-foot fence in someone’s backyard in Pecan Grove. The animal then hopped on a shed.

In a Facebook post, Fort Bend County Precinct 1 Constable Chad Norvell said a coyote killed a woman’s French bulldog this past weekend. The woman said she saw the coyote run by her house.

“Please be aware we live among them and a 6′ fence isn’t an obstacle,” Norvell said in the post.

Here are some precautions from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department if you spot coyotes in your area:

  • Keep pet food and water inside.
  • Keep compost piles securely covered.
  • Keep pets inside, secure them in a kennel or covered yard, or within the close presence of an adult.
  • Be sure to walk pets on a leash and accompany them outside, especially at night.
  • Minimize clusters of shrubs, trees and other cover and food plants near buildings and children’s play areas to avoid attracting rodents and small mammals that attract coyotes.
