Residents of Texoma are seeing more coyotes on highways and their neighborhoods. Wichita County, Texas Game Warden Tyler Reed says it has to do with the drought. As of Tuesday, it is day 52 of the drought. The coyote population grew the last two years as their prey’s population, mice and rats, also grew. With the recent drought, the amount of mice and rats has decreased leaving the coyotes to roam for food.
