CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Florida Fish and Wildlife is urging people living in the northwest Cape Coral to be on alert for Coyotes.

FWC says a group of eight large coyotes have recently been spotted in an area along Embers Parkway between Burnt Store Road and El Dorado Boulevard. 

While coyotes are not usually aggressive towards people, they have been known to occasionally get into garbage and attack small pets.
