Coyotes are found throughout Lake County in rural, suburban and urban areas. If you see a coyote crossing your backyard, golf course, field or sauntering down the sidewalk, this is normal coyote behavior. It is common to see them during the day and as long as they are given space, they typically to not pose a threat to people or pets.
Coyotes are naturally fearful of people and given space will move off. Do not approach the coyote, let your dog approach it or feed it. Shouting and waving of arms will reinforce their fear of people.
Our Lake County partners published a document on Who to Call and When.
