Coyote sightings increase in area

State and local officials say there may be more coyotes coming into the urban area, but have no actual numbers. “There have been increasing calls throughout the whole Los Angeles County because of the drought,” said Brenda Sanchez, spokeswoman for the county Department Animal Care and Control. “They’re coming down to look for water because the creeks are dry,” Sanchez said. “People have bird baths and water in their grass.” One reason for the lack of specific numbers is that there are a number of agencies that deal with coyotes. All of them only respond in cases where there is a danger. “If someone just sees a coyote walking through an area, that’s not a problem,” said Ken Pellman, spokesman for the county Agriculture Commissioner’s Office, another agency that deals with coyotes. “If they’re not harming anyone they shouldn’t be bothered.” Only if a coyote is approaching people or running off with pets would his office respond, Pellman said. The state Department of Fish and Game responds to what are called “public safety issues.” “Let’s say a person is walking their dog and a coyote comes after them, then it’s not a pet issue but a personal safety issue,” said Harry Morse, spokesman for the Department of Fish and Game. “Then we respond.” But in the Southern California region with about 20 million people, his department responds only about once a week, Morse said. Residents in the Whittier area are more likely to see coyotes because of increasing development, he said. “The orange groves are gone,” he said. “Over the 20 years, we’ve reduced the habitat for any type of wildlife. There’s a remnant of population that has to adapt to living in urban areas.” The coyote has proven that it can adapt, Morse said. So much so that coyotes recently were seen in downtown Chicago, he said. “When the last nuclear cloud is done, two things will come out: cockroaches and coyotes,” he said. Dan Cooper, ecologist for the Puente Hills Landfill Native Habitat Preservation Authority, said coyotes don’t pose a problem for humans. “They really don’t (attack people),” Cooper said. “Dogs attack people 1,000 times more often. I’d be much more concerned seeing a dog walk down the street.” Coyotes are scavengers, he said. They’re just looking for trash. “People need to realize that coyotes are not an enemy to humans,” he said. “They just co-exist in this area with people. It’s like being against the rain,” he said. “It gets you wet. It’s not a good or bad thing. It just is.” But there are things people can do to keep coyotes from coming into their backyard and posing a problem to their pet dog or cat, according to recommendations from the Agriculture Commissioner’s Office. Never feed or attempt to tame coyotes. Don’t leave pet food out in the back yards. Do not leave small children or pets outside unattended. Install motion-sensitive lighting around the house. Trim ground-level shrubbery to reduce hiding places. If followed by a coyote, make loud noises. If this fails, throw rocks in the animal’s direction. These are all good ideas, said Dolores Hays, a neighbor of Melcher’s, who has heard of and seen coyotes in her area. Hays said she saw a coyote in her backyard and her neighbor saw one while driving. “I walk the area every night and I’ve told as many people as I can (about coyotes),” Hays said. “People should be aware that we do have coyotes in our neighborhood.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A coyote came into her backyard and attacked her dog. She had taken her Chihuahuas, Doxxy and Precious, out into her yard when a coyote nudged the gate open and grabbed one dog by the neck. “I stood up and said, `You drop my dog or I will eat you,”‘ she said. “`I will have you on my barbecue.’ The coyote dropped the dog.” last_img
