In a news release, Jennifer Churchill, spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, said coyotes can become more aggressive in the months of January and February.
"As coyotes pair up to breed, they may be more territorial than usual and defend their space as they carve out a place to have their young," Churchill said. "Citizens are well-advised to be aware of their presence and the potential for conflicts with humans in metro and rural areas."
"Though they tend to be bolder and more protective during this time of year, coyotes are timid by nature and residents who come in contact with them are encouraged to haze and frighten the animals to drive them away. Any contact with a coyote should immediately be reported to parks and wildlife."
