    More coyotes are being spotted on Texoma highways and neighborhoods. Wichita County Game Warden Tyler Reed said it is because of the drought. "Coyotes are very adaptable," Reed said. "They'll go anywhere they can find food." Sometimes that means roaming backyards after the coyotes are attracted to dog food, cat food and garbage.  "As their population grows then they get a lot denser in areas," Reed said.
