Protect your Pets

By | January 13, 2018

Pet owners please be aware that there are coyotes in Northville Township.

Dogs and cats can be inviting to them, in fact a resident in Grande Vista Estates, off of 7 mile and west of Beck, just lost their small dog to 2 coyotes.

According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, coyotes can be found everywhere in Michigan — forests, fields, farmlands, backyards, neighborhoods and cities.  It is possible for people in suburban and urban areas to coexist with wildlife, including coyotes. However, many people would prefer not to have them hanging around.
Learn a few simple steps you can take to make your neighborhood less appealing to coyotes with the DNR’s new Co-existing with Coyotes video at:    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v4WK65w8pg
We recognize that no one likes to go out on a cold and snowy night, but keeping your pet on a leash under constant supervision will prevent a tragedy here at the Woodlands.  It also is a requirement of the Association Rules and Regulations.   Your furry fiends depend upon you to protect them in exchange for the loving companionship that they provide.

Please refer to Section 2 of the By-laws found by clicking here.  Pet Regulations are designed to insure harmony in the neighborhood but also to protect your pets.
