We know that the presence of wild animals in the community can be of great concern, and there appears to be a thriving coyote population in Roswell. Unfortunately, there are no easy answers when human-wildlife conflict arises, but the best course of action is to be proactive and try to avoid conflict from developing. Our website provides recommendations for trying to minimize human-coyote conflict , and this advice is applicable to most species of wildlife.
It is just not possible to eradicate all coyotes – others will come in and fill the void – but selective removal might have to occur in some instances. Certainly no one wants rabid animals in areas where they might come into contact with humans and pets.
Please use our website (http://cs.berry.edu/coyote/report.php) to report coyote sightings and/or incidences so that we can better understand urban coyote populations and help to contribute towards safe and effective management decisions.
