The Urban Coyote
coyote Coyotes have always been a part of our local environment, living in and around flood control areas, wetlands, nature centers and other open spaces.  Most of the time, coyotes shy away from populated areas: however if tempted by easy food sources, they can be drawn into neighborhoods.  Fortunately, following a few simple guidelines will discourage coyotes from staying your neighborhood:

 

 

 

 

  • Keep Trashcans covered at all times
  • Never leave pet food outside
  • Pick up fallen fruit from fruit trees
  • Keep small pets inside, especially cats and dogs at dawn and dusk
  • Clear brush from around the house
  • Never leave small children unsupervised outside

Animal Care Services strive to make Long Beach the safest city.
