Are there coyotes in the District?
Coyotes are native to this area. They tend to be active during the day but are pretty fearful of humans. If you come across a coyote, making loud noises by yelling or banging pots and pans, as well as waving your arms will scare them off as well as instilling in them their natural fear of humans.
To keep coyotes from coming into your yard, keep food and trash secure. Keep hedges trimmed back as well. To keep pets safe, keep them indoors, especially at night.
If a wild animal is in need, danger or you believe it is rabid, immediately call us at 202-723-5730.
