It is only necessary to report you have seen a coyote if:
- The coyote has followed, chased, or attacked someone or a pet
- the coyote is acting aggressively or defensively
- the coyote looks sick
When an incident with a coyote is reported, the City will investigate and determine if a problem exists. Depending on the circumstances, a course of action will be taken. This could include public education, posting warning signs that a coyote has been seen in the area, or coyote removal.
