DETROIT (WJBK) -

A woman living on Detroit's west side says she can't believe a group of coyotes are hanging around her home.

She has photos and videos of the animals in a field nearby her house.

Animal experts say coyote sightings are common in the city, and they are likely more visible now because of the harsh winter. The wintry conditions have made it harder for the animals to hunt for food.

Tim Payne with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the coyotes aren't likely to attack, and that Michigan has no record of a coyote attacking a person.

He suggests if you come across a coyote, protect yourself by throwing things at the animal, waving your arms and making loud noises and the animal will likely shy away.

Remember to keep an eye on your small pets because they will be a target for the coyotes. And if you have coyotes around your home and are leaving food out for them, stop doing so immediately.
