City council members in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park have approved an ordinance that allows dangerous coyotes to be trapped.
The ordinance that passed Monday is in response to a coyote attack that killed a resident's pet dog last month.
The measure gives the police chief the authority to determine whether a coyote is dangerous.
Trapped coyotes will be euthanized. The resident making the complaint will pay $250 to cover trapping costs.
