Sharing Your Neighborhood with Coyotes
The City of Los Angeles Department of Animal Services has recently had an increase in the number of coyote sightings reported in residential areas and public parks.
LA Animal Services urges the community to follow these prevention tips and actions to keep two and four-legged family members safe:

  • Never feed coyotes
  • Do not approach coyotes for any reason.
  • Closely supervise all children while outside.
  • Keep pets on leash and close by at all times.
  • Keep pet food and water dishes inside.
  • Secure food and trash at all times and remove all sources of water.
  • Remove overgrown brush and hanging bushes to improve visibility.
  • If a coyote approaches or acts aggressively, throw rocks, make noise, look big, and pick up small children and pets. Do not turn your back to the animal.
  • If a coyote attacks, call 911.
