Mayor Flinn has received several reports of animals being removed. "We've had a few incidents of people observing actual cats being taken", indicated Mayor Flinn to NBC Channel 6 . Mayor Flinn has documented the sightings in his personal blog and has invited representatives from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) to head an informational workshop to discuss how residents can coexist with coyotes and also present valuable biological information on these species.
