Yesterday morning, according to our Detroit-desk reporter Stephanie McCoy, a wild coyote was spotted running around the Detroit Zoo. So they shut the zoo down while they went looking for it. Never found it. But, because of this, the Detroit Free Press found some tips on about what to do if you encounter a wild coyote.

Some (not all) of these tips will also work if you are researching "ways to enjoy Taste of Country 2017 - starring Justin Moore and Randy Houser - on June 9th at Cooley Law School Stadium in downtown Lansing".

Here are some tips for scaring coyotes and/or partying at TOC-Lansing:

1. Be as big and loud as possible.
2. Wave your arms, clap your hands and shout in an authoritative voice.
3. Make noise - whistle.

Remember - if we follow these guidelines, we'll all have fun at TOC-Lansing and the threat of wild coyotes interrupting the show should be minimal. Thanks in advance.

BTW - here are the rules about what you can and CANNOT bring into the concert. It's probably best, but "Coyote-shakers" - not allowed.
