Free-roaming pets

Free-roaming pets, especially cats (and sometimes small dogs), may attract coyotes into neighborhoods. The best way to minimize risk to pets is never to leave them outside unattended. For cats, this means either keeping ~hem indoors at all times or letting them outside only under your supervision wearing a harness and leash or in a secure enclosure (such as a catio).

Always walk dogs on a leash (6 ft long or less), and attend td them when they're outside unless you have acoyote-proof fence.

Community cat colonies

People who feed community cats are often concerned that coyotes might prey on the cats. These concerns are well-founded, as coyotes are attracted to both the outdoor ret food and the cats themselves as prey.

Here are general suggestions for keeping such cats safer:

Feed cats only once per day and at a set time. Pick up any leftovers immediately.

Elevate feeding stations beyond coyotes'-but not the cats'-reach.

Give community cats escape routes in places where trees and other climbing opportunities are scarce. Install wooden posts (four inches by four inches or corner posts) that stand out of the ground at least 7 to 12 feet and can be climbed by cats but not by coyotes.
