coyotes

Ohio State University's Waterman Dairy Center is located in a busy urban area. It sits at the intersection of Kenny Road and Lane Avenue on OSU's west campus. Researchers keep a small herd of cows in barns and pastures, but recently more unusual livestock showed up on the farm. Managers of the farm and area residents have reported seeing coyotes, an animal more associated with open range, especially in western states. The sightings sparked a controversy about whether the animals should be removed from an area frequented by students and livestock.
