Coexist with Coyotes

Generally, coyotes are shy and avoid contact with humans. In some areas, however, coyotes may be less likely to fear people and more likely to associate them with an easy, dependable food source. Some have been known to come up to the doors of homes if food is regularly present. If you live in an area where there are coyotes, it is important to supervise children and pets when they are outside. Make sure you are not inadvertently attracting coyote by leaving out open trash containers, feeding pets outside, or leaving spilled bird seed on the ground. Check out all of our resources to learn how to humanely coexist with coyotes. (Informational pamphlets and coyote PSA video created with support from The Nion Robert Thieriot Foundation.)

Does Massachusetts have a coyote problem?

The MSPCA’s Elizabeth Magner, PhD. was interviewed by the Boston Globe for their segment called The Argument, where she spoke about the “non” coyote problem in Massachusetts. Magner advocates for simple adjustments to our behaviors that can drastically reduce human-coyote interactions, while allowing us to still benefit from the important role these animals play in our ecosystem.
