How to coexist with coyotes

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 by Tai Moses

Spring means many things to many people, but to wild animals, it means baby animal season. Many species of wildlife are out right now searching for dens, raising their young and looking for extra food to feed their families. Coyotes den from April to November and while they’re raising their pups, it’s critical to keep pets away from them – both for the safety of the pets and the coyotes. The Austin Animal Center has an entire page of information about coyotes in Central Texas that includes tips for hazing – the practice of deterring coyotes from hanging around near humans. With a little education and common sense, it’s entirely possible for humans to safely coexist with urban coyotes.
