Recently, there have been sightings of coyotes in residential areas. To report coyote sightings, contact Edgar Rojas in the Public Works Department at (626) 430-2210, Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. All other hours, coyote sightings can be reported to the Department of Fish and Game at (562) 596-3885.
The following guidelines can assist residents in coexisting with this wildlife:
- Do not leave small children and/or pets unattended outdoors (even if pets are caged).
- Do not encourage, entice, approach or feed coyotes. It is not only dangerous, it is a violation of the law (L.A.M.C. 53.06.5).
- Remove pet food dishes when pets have finished eating. Do not leave unattended food outdoors.
- Pick up fallen fruit from yard. Do not leave ripened fruit on branches. Trim low branches and dense shrubbery to reduce hiding places.
- Enclose vegetable gardens with wire mesh or use greenhouses.
- Secure crawl spaces under houses, porches and decks by screening with wire mesh. Wildlife can chew through chicken wire.
- Clean grills or barbecues after use.
- Secure or store trash containers in enclosed structures or strap down lids. Occasionally, spray ammonia in the trash to cutdown food odors.
- Keep your property well lit at night and use motion lights when possible to help alert to outdoor activity.
- Make sure your fencing is secure. Check for gaps and openings and repair them.
If you see a coyote:
- Do not turn and run. It may trigger the coyote to chase you. Coyotes can sprint at up to 40 mph.
- Make yourself appear larger by raising your arms and waving them.
- Never let a coyote go by without trying to scare it. Teach children to never approach coyotes, just as you would never approach stray dogs.
- Keep your pet leashed, close and be aware of your surroundings when walking. Carry a walking stick or umbrella to fend off an animal.
- For coyotes on your property, make a scare kit including air horns, whistles, baseballs and golf balls to throw, and/or a fire extinguiser to scare off the animals.
