Coyote seen roaming Henderson family's backyard twice in one day

A Henderson woman whipped out her cell phone to record a coyote in her backyard for the second time in the same day.

Rheda Fisher and her husband Willie Fisher were relaxing in their family room when they saw a fairly big coyote walking on the wall in their backyard.

They snapped a couple pictures.

A couple hours later, the coyote came back and was walking on their wall again. The coyote appeared to be looking down into their yard in search for food.

Rheda took out her cell phone to record the the coyote the second time.

"This particular one seemed very comfortable," said Fisher. "It was just too comfortable. In broad daylight! That's the other thing!"

The couple watched the coyote grab a rabbit and eat it right in front of them.

"He doesn't look like he's hungry," Rheda said in the commentary of the video she took. "He's been eating something."

The couple doesn't have pets themselves but their neighbors do.

They want their neighbors to be aware of how close to homes the coyotes are coming in Sun City Anthem.

As construction continues to happen and they continue to build out further, the coyotes come into the neighborhoods more and more in search for food and water.

Nevada wildlife officials say this is normal since we are taking over their land but we need to make sure we protect ourselves and our pets.

Loud noises are good deterrents.

Make sure you do not leave food, water, and trash out for the coyotes.
