Coyotes play an important role in the ecosystem, helping to keep rodent populations under control. They are by nature fearful of humans. If given access to human food and garbage, their behavior changes. They lose caution and fear. They may cause property damage. They might threaten human safety. They might be killed.
Relocating a problem coyote is not an option because it only moves the problem to someone else’s neighborhood. Help prevent human-coyote conflicts by taking some precautions around your property.
Below is City of West Covina - October 23, 2017- Coyote Management Plan Community Meeting video.
