Greenwood rejects feeding ban

December 5, 2012

Greenwood city leaders say they'll look for other ways to discourage coyotes from roaming neighborhoods after a proposed ban on feeding stray and wild animals was rejected. Greenwood City Councilman Tim McLaughlin said the city will talk with coyote experts after the council voted 6-3 this week against the proposed ban on leaving food outdoors. The proposal followed numerous reports of coyote attacks on family pets in recent months.
