Coyotes and snakes are amongst the most abundant

A group of coyotes was spotted wondering around a Florida town recently. This is not an uncommon site as many states are experiencing more sightings of coyotes in the past few years. Due to things such as increased urbanization, coyotes are forced to move closer and closer to humans. The coyotes were responsible for killing one families dog after it ran away. Officials are urging people to take precautions to keep themselves and their animals safe.

A dead snake was found recently in a Florida town that is a suspected albino burmese python. The species is considered invasive in the state of Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating whether or not the snake is a python. Many residents are taking extra precautions when they go outside in their yards and around public areas.
