FULSHEAR, Texas - A coyote was caught on camera walking around a Fulshear neighborhood in the middle of the night.

Viewers in Pearland and Spring say they have also spotted coyotes in their neighborhoods.

Former Houston Police officer Mike McCoy says three coyotes jumped his fence and attacked his dog Bella last week. His other dog Jaeger jumped in to protect her, scaring off the coyotes.

Wildlife experts say coyote encounters like this one could happen more often as new homes spring up in their habitat.
