Fall Coyote Activity & Awareness

Coyote sightings in and around our neighborhoods are quite common and are rarely a cause for concern.  Particularly during this time of year when adolescent coyotes are starting to disperse from their birth territory and can get into trouble exploring new areas.  If you know coyotes are present in the area, it is always important to keep a close eye on your pet when outside, regardless of their size, and be sure to inform your neighbors to not feed urban wildlife in their yards or local parks.  If you have questions, visit the DNR's Urban Coyote webpage or the Urban Wildlife webpage for more information.


Milwaukee County Parks and the Wisconsin DNR are interested in any coyote sightings to monitor coyote activity and behavior.  If you see a coyote, please report this observation to the "Milwaukee County Coyote Watch" project page at iNaturalist.org.  Thank you for your help!
