Shaunta WhiteheadMaybe if development stop building unnecessary housing and condos or deforestation they won't be trying to make a dense community their home I'm not agreeing to let them run wild I understand the safety precautions of people and pets but maybe their homes were destroyed.6 days ago   ·  46
Stacie TilleryCoyotes aren't aggressive animals, they would more than likely never attack a dog being walked, they would run the other way if they saw a human (unless perhaps they were provoked or rearing pups or an animal w/ rabies) Coyotes prey mainly off small rodents such as moles, squirrels, porcupines etc. and not to mention coyotes are very territorial therefore as soon as you kill one a different one will take over the area and make it their territory. You will never get rid of coyotes.6 days ago   ·  16

Stephanie LechleiterMaybe this should be a reminder (to my neighbors across the street) that pets should be walked. Not let out to roam the neighborhood and poop in everyone's yard. For their own safety. And I agree with pp. Coyotes are not aggressive and typically feed off of smaller rodents we don't want to be over run with. Keep your house pets safe and with you.6 days ago   ·  5

Debbie Eddy FletcherThere is no unnecessary building going on in the Pfafftown area.... However, the state wildlife commission introduced them and the coyotes have gotten out of hand, at least in Pfafftown. Not sure about where you live, Shaunta.6 days ago   ·  2
Ashley N Angie HortonUmm, Yes they are in packs! We hear them all the time! They may prefer to be alone but when they want to go for something big they team up! There are calves and cows getting attacked around here all the time! Even know some people who had full grown horses attacked! They are also not afraid! We have lost about 20 chickens to coyotes that take them right out of the chicken house that is in an open pasture within feet of our yard and had 2 barn cats disappear that rarely left the barn, I figured they wondered into the woods until we saw a coyote about 20 feet from our barn! And we keep a light and music on in the barn at all times! So, no they are not afraid! They may run if they see a human but are not afraid to come right up to your yard, barn, pastures, etc. Yes they need to be controlled and yes they do pack together to kill animals much bigger than dogs! The bigger the population gets the bigger chance that human and children attacks will happen! It has happened in other parts of the country! I think there is actually a bigger chance of this in the developments where there's not as many livestock to go for instead! The government brought them back to the area so we are not invading their habitat, they are invading ours!4 days ago   ·  2
Jennifer ConnollyCoyotes are generally not aggressive animals but can be habituated to humans which makes them more likely to approach as they have recognized a good food source. We can help the situation by securing trash inside the trash can. Not on top or next to the can. Feeding pets inside and keeping small pets inside at night. Not doimg these things might attract them in your direction and they are definitely around. Several sites recommend scaring coyotes with loud noises if you are approached or find them in your yard. Haven't ever tried so don't know if this works.5 days ago   ·  2

Winston-Salem Northern Beltway on Schedule Again

If you live in Pfafftown, you should be following the development of the Winston-Salem Northern Beltway which is slated for construction in 2015. There have been several ‘scares’ over the years but now it looks like the process is starting to move forward.

“Based on NCDOT’s Urban Loop Acceleration Plan, the department is speeding up the purchase of property and the start of construction for a portion of the eastern section that stretches from U.S. 421/Business 40 to U.S. 158. This portion was previously unfunded and had no set schedules. The plan allowed right-of-way acquisition to begin in 2012 and construction to start in 2015. The accelerated schedule is made possible by Grant Anticipation Revenue, or GARVEE, bonds, which allow NCDOT to borrow against future federal funding.”

Read up on the Urban Loop Acceleration Plan here: http://www.ncdot.gov/performance/reform/prioritization/
