Coyotes, they are here in Pinellas County
- 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.
