Woman finds family of coyote living under her house

A woman in Los Angeles discovered that a coyote family had been living under her house.

LOS ANGELES — A woman in Los Angeles discovered that a coyote family had been living under her house.

Phaedra Harris said she jumped out of bed on May 31 after she heard a woman screaming in the middle of the night, KNBC reported.

Harris said she knew those screams were associated with coyotes frequenting the area, KTLA reported.

“Sure enough, this woman was just running for her life,” Harris said, according to the news outlet. “And I was like, ‘Get in here! Get your dog! Get in here!’”

Days before this encounter, Harris learned coyotes were living under her house, KNBC reported.

“My neighbor, she sent me a video of the coyotes coming out of my crawlspace,” Harris said, according to KTLA.

Harris called the Humane Wildlife Control, Inc., an organization that works to remove wildlife humanely. The crawlspace has since been closed off.

“Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that coyotes were right here, but yeah they’re here,” she said.
