Important Reminders About Our Coyote Neighbors

The Village has received an increased number of phone calls regarding coyote sightings. The Village does not remove coyotes, let trapped animals out of cages, or bring trapped animals to different locations. Coyotes inhabit every available territory in Cook County, and between February and March coyotes breed and may become more territorial. Coyotes, however, tend to be wary of humans and tend to keep their distance. People should nonetheless remain alert if any wild animal is suspected to be near and take reasonable measures to ensure their safety. A few practical steps we can take to coexist with coyotes include the following: Remove food from outdoor settings that might attract coyotes (including pet food and bird food); Respect coyotes as wild animals by not feeding or otherwise attempting to befriend or tame them; and Support preservation of natural habitat.  Please call 9-1-1, if you feel your are in immediate danger.  Please click here for more information regarding coyotes
