UPDATE OCT. 19: Another coyote was spotted in a Henderson – this time in a man's backyard in the middle of the day.

The homeowner says he spotted the coyote and immediately grabbed his phone. You can see the coyote run toward the back wall before eventually jumping over at this house near Windmill Parkway and Pecos Road.

ORIGINAL STORY: A coyote was spotted recently roaming around a Henderson park.

The animal isn't captured on video for very long, but the realization that coyotes have been roaming Morrell Park, located near Boulder Highway and Major Avenue made one man uncomfortable.

"There might be an instance where she's playing over there and there comes a coyote," said Brian Chavez of his niece. "I'm too far to get to her you know? So that is a concern, yeah."
