MISSION HILLS, Kan. (KCTV) - The city of Mission Hills is reviewing its next steps following an incident in Peetwood Park that left two dogs injured. A local resident contacted our investigative unit last week after her dogs, Fred and Oreo, were hurt.

The city placed the traps in response to other residents’ concerns about coyotes in the area. The city sent postcards to those living near the park and warned people in person. Elisabeth Kirsch, the owner of the injured dogs, was not notified because she lives in neighboring Prairie Village.

The city put up signs, similar to garage sale signs, warning: “Nuisance Animal Trapping IN PROGRESS. Contact City Hall FOR MORE INFORMATION.”
