Coyotes are sly, intelligent and very adaptable animals. Despite attempts to regulate their numbers throughout the United States, coyote populations have continued to increase.
To deter coyotes from your property, consider the following tips:
- Make your trash can inaccessible by keeping lids securely fastened.
- Do not keep pet food outdoors.
- Some deterrents that may keep coyotes from your property include: battery operated flashing lights, tape recorded human noises, and squirting the coyote with a garden hose.
Unless there is an immediate threat to human life, the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society or the City of San Gabriel will not trap, relocate, or kill coyotes.
