CoyoteNEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Reports of coyote sightings and attacks in the past couple of months prompted authorities to place several traps and cameras near the vacant John F. Kennedy High School.

But less than two months after three cameras and three traps were set up, the city learned one camera and two traps had been stolen.

The remaining traps and cameras were removed by the city and officials say they are now working on a plan B.
