Spot A Coyote In The SGV? Here’s A Number You Can Call
That’s the idea, anyway, behind a new outreach effort to teach residents what to do if they see one and how to avoid attracting them in the future.
The new Neighborhood Coyote Program covers 10 cities: Alhambra, Arcadia, Azusa, Covina, Irwindale, Montebello, Rosemead, San Gabriel, San Marino and Temple City.
Natalya Romo with the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments says the goal is to inform residents about coyote behavior, pacing technique, the ecology of coyotes, safety tips and then just utilizing better habits not to attract coyotes into their neighborhood and private property.
The program includes a central number that residents of all 10 cities can call. That number is (626) 278-8039.
There’s also a new social media campaign and a website with more information.
