Safety

  • Do Not Feed Wild Animals
  • Human Urine (Male) is supposed to deter most wild animals, including Coyotes and large Wild Cats.
  • Wolf Urine has also been recommended.
  • Do not lock animals out at night.   In fact, you should escort your small pets out for potty breaks.
  • Do not leave toddlers alone in the backyard.  There was a child jumping on a trampoline and a coyote actually came out and grabbed it and tried to drag it off!
  • Cats are not safe outdoors.    There have been reports of coyotes coming into garages and up to door steps to get to cats.
  • Its not safe to allow small children to walk dogs.  Coyotes have attacked people walking their dogs.   Its recommended that when walking your dog, to carry a self defense product like the Zap Cane on the Products Page.
  •  Coyotes are sneaky.   They often come at you from the back.  When walking, try to keep children and pets in front of you.
