The Alhambra Police Department and Alhambra Code Enforcement are working together to develop a Coyote Management plan. We encourage residents to call the Alhambra Police Department (626-570-5151 non-emergency or 911 emergency) if a coyote poses a danger to the public’s safety. Please contact Alhambra Code Enforcement at 626-570-3230 for the day-time/voicemail number to report a sighting of coyotes. Please include the date, time, and location of where the coyote was seen. If you would like a return call, please include your name and the best telephone number you can be reached. Coyotes are very adaptable and attracted to urban/suburban areas due to the easy accessibility or food, water, and shelter.Here are a few ways you can reduce or eliminate the availability of these elements to encourage coyotes to leave: FOOD
FENCINGBRUSH and VEGETATIONPlease remember that coyotes are wild animals, much like bears, raccoons, possums, skunks, hawks, and falcons. The City of Alhambra is their home too, and by following the preventative measures described above, ensuring that you do not feed or approach them, keep your pets and family safe and secure, we can all live together in our community. And finally, if they do not run away from you, try to scare them away by making loud noises or throwing rocks at their direction. Your efforts will help reduce the amount of coyote sightings in the City of Alhambra.
