What should I teach my child about coyotes?
  • If you see a coyote, never run, even if you’re scared. 
  • Yell at the coyote in an angry voice and make yourself look bigger by putting your arms in the air.
  • Never approach coyotes or any other wildlife.
  • Do not leave food for the coyotes.
  • Never litter. Keep your home yard, schoolyards and parks clean.
  • When walking the dog, always keep it on a leash. Pick up the dog feces to throw away in a garbage can.
  • Make sure that you don’t let the cat out.
