Have You Ever Seen a Coyote in Your Neighborhood?
Councilmember Martinez recently invited representatives from Arizona Game and Fish to speak at the Foothills Recreation and Aquatics center about coyotes and other Arizona wildlife. All who attended received valuable information on what to do and how to react when approached by urban coyotes. For those who could not make it, below is some of that information:

  • What Attracts Coyotes?
    Coyotes may visit a home if they find food, water, or shelter there.
    Food can include unattended pets, birds or rodents attracted to bird feeders, pet food, garbage, or fallen fruit.
    Water sources can include a pet’s water bowl or a swimming pool.
    Shelter can include a storm drain or any cave-like area beneath a shed or unused building.

  • What Should I Do?
    If you see a coyote near your home, don’t ignore it. This may cause it to lose its natural fear of people, which can eventually lead to aggressive behavior.

  • To discourage a coyote, immediately:
    Make loud noises.
    Shout and bang pots and pans or rattle empty soda cans with pebbles in it (coyote shaker).
    Wave your hands or objects like sticks and brooms.
    Throw small stones or cans.
    Spray the coyote with a hose.
    Use a commercial repellent like Mace, if necessary, on bold animals that refuse to leave.
