Coyotes are amazingly adaptable and can survive in nearly any habitat. Providing easy meals for them, eliminates their natural fear of humans and increases their population. Keep wildlife wild!
Never leave pet food or trash outside where it will attract wildlife.
Avoid walking dogs during dawn or dusk hours, which are coyotes’ normal feeding times. Avoid using a retractable leash. Coyotes will notice a dog walked frequently on an extended leash. The coyote will come back, grab the dog, and leave the owner holding an empty leash. When walking a pet, carry a stick, whistle or air horn.
