Being located in the coastal chaparral region of California, Sea Pointe Estates Residents come into contact with various wildlife on a daily basis. One of our not so friendly wild neighbors is the Coyote. The Board of Directors would like to provide Sea Pointe Estates owners with the following resources to help keep residents and their pets safe from these potentially dangerous creatures.
- Never leave food out in your yard for your pets, as this will attract Coyotes to your home.
- Keep close supervision of all pets and small children when outdoors.
- Keep pets on a short leash, coyote can be very brave and are not afraid to approach a pet even when a human is in the vicinity.
- Keep your dogs and cats indoors, especially at night.
- Never approach an aggressive, sick or injured coyote.
On August 16, 2017, a representative from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife lead an Education Coyote Seminar at the Sea Pointe Estates Clubhouse. Below, please find a link to the notes from this seminar, an article entitled “Living with California Coyotes”, and a double sided flier provided by the Department of Fish and Wildlife that were provided at the seminar.
The University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources provides a link to report coyote encounters. You can view an interactive map that details coyote encounters throughout California.
