Winter is breeding season for coyotes. We have been getting calls regarding seeing coyotes during the day and that behavior for this time of year is normal. Coyotes are re-establishing their pair bonds now and begin looking for a good place to raise their pups when they arrive in spring.
If you do cross paths with a coyote, use the SMART Method:
Stop – stop moving
Make yourself big – wave arms and fists
Announce – speak forcefully and loudly… “Go away! Get out!”
Repeat – do this several times until the coyote is out of sight
Tell – tell others in the area
