ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 7, 2019) — Coyotes are a fact of life.

They are drawn to cities for easy sources of food, including trash cans and outdoor pet food.

While they are more active in the springtime, coyotes have become a fixture in our communities throughout the year.

Coyotes lived in Orange County long before many neighborhoods took shape. And they’ve become very good at adapting to our urban environment.

Realizing this, the city of Anaheim has created a management plan to help residents understand coyote behavior and how we can minimize our interactions with them.

But for our efforts to be successful, we need your help. An important part of the plan is reporting coyote sightings.

The more data we have about coyote sightings and human interactions, the better equipped we will be to do community outreach and intervene if necessary.

You can report coyote sightings online at Anaheim.net/coyotes.

There you can also find an interactive map showing coyote incidents in Anaheim.

And the good news is that our plan is already working.

In the last year, we’ve seen an increase in coyote reports, and a decrease in the loss of pets.

It’s proof that the more we educate our neighbors about coyotes, the safer we keep our pets and our community.
