ORANGEVALE (CBS13) – Parents are keeping a close eye on their children and animal control officers will also be on hand Friday morning after a coyote was spotted prowling around an Orangevale elementary school.
The coyote has been seen near a creek that borders Trajan Elementary School in Orangevale.
Carrie Sweeney snapped pictures of the coyote using her cell phone.
She said she’s concerned because the animal did not show any fear of people.
Sweeney says she called animal control, but they did not show up right away.
The coyote and her pups have been spotted numerous times around the creek near the school.
A spokesperson tells CBS13 that animal control officers will be at the school on Friday to look for the coyote.
