As San Diego grows and builds more and more housing, stores and businesses, the wildlife gets pushed further into our neighborhoods ever year. One of the biggest concerns are the coyote’s. This time of the year is also the coyote dispersal season when the young leave to find new territories.
They can be seen roaming suburb streets at night and even early mornings as we head off to school and work. They may be gorgeous and cute…but make no mistakes they are not domesticated dogs. They are wild animals and have no qualms about coming on to your property and snatching your cats, dogs or God forbid attacking your children.
It’s a wise decision to not let your animals out at night alone – not even in your own backyard. Fences are no obstacle for a hungry coyote. Absolutely do NOT let your children out alone. If you have outdoor cats, it’s a good idea to lock them in the garage at night. They may not like it, but it’ll keep them from being a main dinner course to a hunting coyote.
There is a website called Coyote Cacher, which has been around since February 2017. Register and you can update the database with the time and exact location where you last spotted a coyote. Other registered users connected to the app will receive a real-time warning on their mobile devices. For the Coyote Cacher website…CLICK HERE.
