PREDATOR ALERT: Coyote Sightings in South Sarasota Fl Where Cats Are Disappearing, Red Bug Slough in South Gate Ridge Perfect Site for Coyotes. Most of the complaints come after cats start disappearing and they have in South Sarasota Fl. Coyote sightings have been recently made public near Bliss Rd off of Proctor Rd, in Oakhurst Circle off of Wilkerson Rd and I personally saw one some months ago early in the morning on Emerald Ridge Pl near Woodrow Ridge Street in South Gate Ridge, they look like a big dog, that's what I thought when I first spotted the creature. Just days ago a small cat did disappear from Woodrow Ridge Street in South Gate Ridge Sarasota Fl.
One resident saw a Coyote take a cat near Bliss Rd and head west on Proctor Rd Sarasota Fl just a few days ago. The coyotes work at dusk and dawn and sleep during the day, they feed on rodents, rabbits, lizards, snakes, fish, insects, grass, fruit and small pets. Picture above is a coyote walking through back yards in Gulf Gate East just east of Beneva Rd in Sarasota, south of Red Bug Slough, it even sat down for a couple of minutes. Coyotes range for miles while on the hunt. Florida Law considers Coyotes a "nuisance species".
In the area of all the coyote sightings is the Red Bug Slough a 72-acre preserve located on Beneva Rd just South of Proctor Rd a perfect location for the Coyotes. Red Bug Slough Preserve is a remnant piece of natural Florida nestled in the midst of suburban Sarasota. The preserve has several miles of hiking trails, a small playground, picnic shelters and a fishing dock. The hiking trails are unpaved but accessible for most visitors. Some trails may flood after heavy rainfall and several trails may be wet year-round where they cross creeks and ditches. The preserve has limited parking and a walk-thru gate near the Beneva Road entrance just south of Proctor Rd and is accessible on foot or by bicycle at several other walk-thru entrances.

If you are thinking about shooting a coyote we recommend extreme caution, not recommended in populated areas, and as always the discharge of any firearm comes with consequences. As with any firearms situation, make sure you know what’s behind your target. No matter how good you are you might miss or the bullet might over-penetrate. You don’t want that bullet hitting any people or damaging your neighbor’s property. It may be helpful to shoot at a downward angle if the coyote is on grass on your property. On pavement that bullet will ricochet so it’s still a potential problem, don't do it.
