Coyote Surprises Firefighters At Fort Lauderdale Station

Firefighters at Fort Lauderdale's Firehouse 29 got a big surprise on Sunday morning. As they went into the bay, they got a glimpse of a coyote lurking in front of a fire truck that was parked inside the bay.

In a tweet, the department wrote, "Not sure who was startled more as they ran in opposite directions". They also mentioned that the Firehouse is located in a "dense urban neighborhood about a mile from the beach".

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, there have been Coyote sightings in all of Florida's 67 counties. These creatures are said to live in the state’s urban, suburban and rural landscapes. But, what will you need to do next time it's you facing the Coyote? The FWC says that coyotes are curious but they are timid and will most likely flee if they're challenged by loud noises or aggressive actions.
