DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Increased sightings of coyotes in suburban areas are unsettling residents in southwest Ohio.
    
One animal control service in the Dayton area says it is getting calls about coyotes nearly every day. People say they are worried that coyotes could attack them or their pets.
    
Coyotes are more threatening to small pets. Officials are urging people not to give coyotes opportunities or to draw them by leaving food out and trash cans uncovered.
    
Development has brought homes near coyote habitats in woods and other areas.
    
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/XC9pLK ) that an Ohio State University expert will host an informational meeting this Sunday at the Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm.
    
Roaming coyotes have been reported over the last several years in affluent Cincinnati suburbs such as Indian Hill and Mariemont.
