The Rocky Ripple Community Association is joining forces with the Rocky Ripple Town Council to get the word out about the proposed flood wall that the City of Indianapolis wishes to build on the west side of the canal. Butler University officials and the city’s project coordinator for the West Bank Alignment are scheduled to attend the next Town Council meeting on Tuesday, March 10th to discuss this. See attachment for details.
Within the past few days numerous residents have reported seeing coyotes in Town. No reports have been made in Town of them attacking pets or being aggressive in nature but residents do need to be proactive in helping to prevent and discourage the coyotes.
The DNR has provided these tips in dealing with coyotes.
Prevention and Control
Feed pets indoors whenever possible; pick up leftovers if feeding outdoors and store pet and livestock feed where it’s inaccessible to wildlife
Eliminate water bowls and other artificial water sources (if possible).
Position bird feeders in a location that is less likely to attract small animals or bring the feeders in at night (to keep coyotes from feeding on the bird food or the other animals).
Do not discard edible garbage where coyotes can get to it. Secure garbage containers
Trim and clean shrubbery near ground level to reduce hiding cover for coyotes or their prey
Do not allow pets to run free and provide secure nighttime housing for them
If you start seeing coyotes around your home, discourage them by shouting, making loud noises or throwing rocks but NEVER corner a coyote – always give the coyote a free escape route.
