A light brown Coyote
There have been reports of a coyote sighting along the Rogers Reservoir Conservation. Please take precautions to avoid conflicts or contact with wildlife.
If you run into wildlife, we ask residents to:
  • Be cautious
  • Pick up small children and dogs
  • Never run from or turn their back on a coyote
  • Slowly back away
  • Yell
  • Carry a flashlight when walking at night

Residents can help prevent coyotes from visiting their property by:

  • Keep pet food and water bowls indoors. Food can attract coyotes to your yard
  • Keep trash cans covered at all times
  • Put garbage out the morning of collection and not the night before
  • Do not allow a large amount of wild bird seed to remain on your lawn as it attracts prey for coyotes
  • Keep pets on leash during walks and indoors at night or enclosed in kennels
  • Keep cats indoors. Letting cats roam can draw coyotes into the area
  • Do not leave leftover food, garbage or dog feces in public or private outdoor spaces
