What To Do/Recommendations:
Preventive measures and passive management are the best ways to avoid coyote conflict.
Never feed coyotes and always prevent their access to food around your home.
Do not leave pet food outside.
Make trash cans inaccessible and secure them with tight lids.
Control small mammals from feeding in and around bird feeders, which can attract coyotes.
Clean and store grills when not in use.
Properly dispose of dead animals, including any nearby roadkill.
Do not allow pets to roam freely and take them indoors at night.
If pets must be kept outside, consider installing fencing and motion-activated lights to discourage predators.
Keep small livestock and poultry in enclosed or sheltered areas.
If you see coyotes near your home and feel uneasy about their presence, make loud noises, spray them with a hose, and generally make them feel unwelcome.
