Coyote Information:
The Cook County Department of Animal and Rabies Control wants to educate the public regarding co-existing safely with urban coyotes. February is the month in which most coyotes mate, therefore we will have more coyote sightings and possible conflicts. Education of the public will help limit the number of conflict situations and hopefully eliminate disasters. The Cook County Department of Animal and Rabies Control has released the following steps to avoid conflicts with coyotes:

  1. Do not feed the coyotes. Keep garbage lids closed so as to not attract other rodents which are the coyotes main source of food.

  2. Do not let your pets run loose. Keep dogs on leashes or stay outside with them in fenced in areas, your presence is the major deterrent to coyotes.

  3. Do not run from a coyote. Wave your hands, stomp your feet, shout at them or throw things at them.

  4. Fencing and lighting your yards can act as repellents

  5. Report aggressive, fearless coyotes to the Cook County Dept. of Animal and Rabies Control at 708.974.6140. Remember that coyotes sighting alone need not be reported especially at this time of year. However, a habituated (lack of fear of humans) coyote may need to be removed.
