NEIGHBORHOOD COYOTE PROGRAM
As interactions increase between residents and coyotes, the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) is committed to ensuring there are dedicated staff and resources available to address safety issues caused by coyotes. The SGVCOG also provides a comprehensive and integrated regional approach to coyote management and serves as the central organization responsible for providing public outreach services and developing a comprehensive reporting mechanism on behalf of the Cities of Alhambra, Arcadia, Azusa, Covina, Irwindale, Montebello, Rosemead, San Gabriel, San Marino, and Temple City.
This regional effort stems from the collaborative work of the SGVCOG's Coyote Management Task Force. The Coyote Management Task Force, with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the County of Los Angeles, the University of California, and other external stakeholders, developed the Regional Coyote Management Framework (RCMF) and the Coyote Management Implementation Plan (CMIP).
The Neighborhood Coyote Program serves as an avenue to address, educate, and report coyote interactions as well as safety issues caused by coyotes within the San Gabriel Valley. Through education and resourcing, we want to ensure the safety of residents and pets. The Neighborhood Coyote Program provides various methods to report coyote encounters as well as tips and information to promote coyote safety. Services and additional resources can be found below.
