Coyote Tips and Presentation

Here is the video from 1623 Studios of the Coyote Ecology & Behavior presentation from Dr. Jonathan Way. The presentation was held on February 27th, hosted by the Animal Advisory Committee.

 

This time of year coyotes will be active, so its important to protect your pets by keeping them indoors or on a leash, and never be left unsupervised.

Coyotes may be denning with small pups near your home or in the woods. They will be extra protective of their pups, so keep your dogs, even large dogs, leashed and close to you. Smaller dogs may be considered prey, while larger dogs could be considered a threat.

Coyotes are attracted to yards with bird feeders, compost, and accessible trash. Not only are some of these things easy meals for coyotes, but they also attract small rodents, which coyotes prefer to eat. You can follow this yard audit to coyote proof your yard, click Here.

We want to keep the coyotes wild, so it is important to be loud and try to scare them away. Bang pots, yell/scream, throw thing in their direction. Ask your neighbors to do the same and report anyone actively feeding them to the police.
