Coyote Sighting Advisory- Click link for info on how to deal with coyotes.

Coyote Advisory:
 
Since July 26, 2017 there have been approximately 9 coyote sightings/contacts in the areas of Susana Ave and in the 400 block of S. Irena Ave.  Coyotes are found in all areas of Los Angeles County and they do not require “wild areas” to survive; they can live and survive in urban areas. Coyotes may be active any time of the day, but are most active from dusk to dawn.
 
Please keep the following in mind when dealing with coyotes:
 

  • Do not leave small children unattended. 
  • Use “hazing” techniques to shoo away coyotes, such as standing tall, yelling and waving arms while approaching the coyote; use a whistle, air horn, bell, bang pots/pans together; stomp your feet; use a water hose, pepper spray, or throw tennis balls or rocks at the coyote.
  • Chaperone your pets when they are outside, especially at night; always keep your pets on a leash, especially from dusk through early morning hours.
  • Do not feed coyotes or any other wildlife.
  • Keep pets & pet food inside. IF feeding outside, feed pets during the day (no more than one hour) and remove the food and water bowls when finished.
  • Remove fallen foods from the ground; bag food wastes such as meat scraps or leftover pet food.
  • Keep trash in containers with tight-fitting lids. Never run away from a coyote.
If you see a coyote please report the sighting:
 
During office hours 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday please call the Police Department Animal Control office at 310-318-0611
