What should you do when you run into a coyote???


To reduce the chance of injury to yourself or a pet during a coyote encounter, do any of the following:

1. Stand your ground, present a bold front (don't act scared) and DO NOT RUN.

2. Make loud noises, shout, clap your hands

3. Blow a whistle

4. Bang 2 pots together

5. Wave your arms and yell loudly

6. Carry a walking stick

7. Spray it with the garden hose

Dr. Mitchell adds: Scoop small pets up into your arms and keep ALL pets on a short tight leash if you see a coyote. NEVER allow a pet to lunge at a coyote or provoke it.
