Manager's Message 
Many residents of Orange County have expressed concerns about coyote


sightings and the consequences of predator animals within the urban

environment. Several residents have lost their pets to these skilled hunters

because they were not aware of recent coyote activity in the area.

Coyotes are found in ALL areas of Orange County. Contrary to popular belief,

these animals do not require open space or “wild areas” to survive. In fact, most

coyotes within the urban setting are the offspring of generations of coyotes who

lived and flourished in the urban areas of Orange County.

Though these animals are far from domesticated, they are very comfortable

living In close proximity to human beings. They have little fear of humans and are

frequently seen trotting along within a few feet of joggers, bikers and horseback

riders. While not normally a danger to human beings, coyotes will display defensive

behaviors if threatened or cornered; therefore, it is important to leave a comfortable

distance between you and a coyote.

Small pets can easily become coyote prey. Cats and small dogs should not be

allowed outside alone, even in a fenced yard. It is highly recommended that their

owner always accompany small pets. Though coyotes generally hunt between

sunset and sunrise, they can be observed at all hours of the day and will not pass

up the opportunity for an easy meal. A dog or cat left in a backyard can be taken in a

matter of moments.

If you do encounter a coyote that behaves aggressively, you have probably gotten

too close to its prey or its family. Increase the “comfort zone” between you and

the coyote. A coyote behaves in a similar way as domestic dogs that are defending

their territory and family. Even a fully fenced yard will not keep out a hungry, athletic

coyote. These animals are extremely agile and can easily scale any residential

fence. All children should be taught from a very early age to avoid strange animals,

whether domestic or non-domestic. They should never attempt to feed a wild

animal. When older children are hiking or are in parks, they should be instructed

on coyote safety. Eradication and/or relocation of the urban coyote is not effective.

These programs actually provide a vacuum in nature, causing these animals to have

even larger litters, ultimately increasing the coyote population.

Practicing these defensive measures will minimize the nuisance and losses

caused by urban coyotes.
