As coyote trapping season ends more and more animals will be spotted across our state.

But the Balmoral neighborhood in Henderson is seeing a drastic and scary increase in the creatures.

On Monday, multiple residents reported spotting coyotes roaming across their neighborhood.

The City of Henderson offered advice to those in the area on how to keep these creatures away, encouraging homeowners to be watchful of what food sources are left outside including pet food.

Another reason for the increase could be linked to high waters in the area, forcing coyotes to higher ground.

This is not the first time this area of Henderson has been flooded with coyotes, as neighbors have reported this same danger in the past.  

Henderson officials have hired a private team to help trap the coyotes in previous years to help keep their residents as safe as possible.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
