Coyote SightingsThe California Department of Fish and Wildlife has provided information and suggestions on how to deal with coyotes in your neighborhood:
- Coyotes may be seen day or night.
- Coyotes very rarely pose a threat to humans, but small pets are an attraction.
- Small pets should be kept indoors and only go outside when attended to by owners. Keep rodents at bay.
- Secure your garbage, and make sure no food is left outside for pets or other wildlife.
- Residents should make an effort to discourage coyotes from encroaching on property by hazing them. Make loud noises, chase after them, throw sticks or rocks at them, etc. A coyote will develop an aversion to being near people and homes and become wary of an area if they are continually hazed.
- Motion sprinklers and lights will likely also deter coyotes from entering yards.
