Preventing Problems with Coyotes
Posted Date: 1/10/2013 2:20:00 PM

Coyotes prefer to be as far from humans as possible, but as with other species, a loss of habitat has left them few choices. To prevent problems in your yard, you must eliminate two main attractants: food and shelter.

 

Do not encourage coyotes by feeding them.

Keep pet food and water dishes inside your residence.

Do not allow spills to accumulate below bird feeders.

Keep grills and barbecues clean. Even small food scraps attract coyotes.

If possible, do not keep garbage bins outside. If they are kept outdoors, make sure   they are securely stored.

Do not add pet waste, meat, milk, or eggs to an exposed compost bin.

Keep ground clear of fruit from trees.

Protect vegetable gardens with heavy-duty fences.

Clear all bushes and dense weeds near the home where coyotes may find shelter and small animals to feed upon.

 

While encounters with coyotes are rare, pet owners should always take a few precautions.

 

Do not leave small pets outside unattended, especially at night.

Walk your dog on a leash.

Keep your yard well lit when outdoors with a pet at night.

Coyotes can be creatures of habit. If you encounter one at the same place and time while walking your pet, change your route or the time you walk.
