Coyotes in the Neighborhood

There have been reports of coyotes in and around Prairie Park/ Buchtel Blvd and missing pets in the neighborhood. The City is looking into putting a coyote sign up in the park. Please continue to spread the word to keep small pets attended by their owners and on leash when outside. This time of year, pups will be in dens so family groups will be staying in smaller territories to stay close, and may be more likely to go after easy prey (cats and dogs are usually not ready to protect themselves).

Also, people should haze/harass them when they see them to remind them to avoid contact with people. Here info on what this means. Kids need to be reminded not to try and feed or approach ANY strange animal, generally coyotes won’t initiate any contact.

Here is the City’s brochure about living with coyotes in Denver.
