  • Keep trash & compost lids closed at all times.
  • Secure doggie doors and limit usage.
  • Discourage a coyote's approach by "hazing" - yell loudly, waive your arms to make yourself large, stomp your feet, and throw projectiles at it.
  • Ask your neighbors to follow these precautions.

  • NEVER run away from a coyote!
  • If the coyote doesn't leave at first, increase the intensity of your hazing
