Hundreds of South Park Families are now on high alert after multiple coyote sightings popped up over the past 48 hours.
Sightings were mostly concentrated in the South Park neighborhood of Madison Park, near the Park Rd. Shopping center.
One resident, Butch Barksdale told animal control that he spotted the creatures out his back window and chased them toward what he later realized was the Pinewood Elementary School.
After multiple calls to 911, Charlotte’s animal control was sent out to find the animals, up to this point, they are still on the search.
Many parents are now thinking twice before letting their kids or small small pets play outside.
