(WBBH) Security cameras have confirmed the presence of coyotes on Florida's Sanibel Island.

A playful pair of coyotes were caught on camera at the Sanctuary Golf Course.

"We were surprised to see them," said course manager Kyle Sweets, "First of all, you gotta wonder how it got there."

It's a question the City of Sanibel and local wildlife organizations are trying to answer.

The first coyote was spotted on the island three years ago. The city has gotten several calls recently from homeowners who have seen the coyotes in their back yards.
