GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Coyotes have taken up residence on the vacant Veterans Affairs property in Gulfport.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1dOsaqK ) Hank Baltar, a retired Naval officer who lives behind the property, has called various agencies about the coyotes, but nobody seems to be able to do anything. He sat through a Tuesday’s Gulfport City Council meeting so he could tell council members about the wild animals in their midst.

Baltar says the coyotes can be spotted daily on the 92-acre waterfront property the federal government deeded several years ago to Gulfport. The city is seeking tenants for what is now known as Centennial Plaza.

Baltar said he thought the council should know, especially because children play on property soccer fields, family pets are around, and houses and apartments sit nearby.
