• Always keep pets on a leash or in a yard with a
coyote-proof fence.
• Securely cover garbage cans and compost bins.
• Remove fallen fruit from your yard.
• Eliminate opportunities for rabbits, rats, and mice to breed
in and around your yard.
• Never deliberately approach a coyote and teach children
to respect all wildlife from a distance.
• Be a responsible pet owner. Keep pets indoors and
allow only controlled access to the outdoors. Always
keep pets in from dusk to dawn when coyotes are
most active.
• To prevent coyotes from entering your yard,
consider removing unnecessary brush, installing a
motion-sensitive lighting system, or installing a
coyote-proof fence. To be effective, fences must be
at least 6 feet tall, have no openings greater than four
inches, and should be flush with the ground.
• If you do not want coyotes around your home,
let them know that they are not welcome. “Haze” them
by shouting, making loud noises, and waving
your arms.
