Coyote mating season underway in Arizona

Here in the desert, coyotes are a pretty common sight and you may be seeing more of them right now as coyote mating season is underway.

If you encounter a coyote, Arizona Game and Fish recommends:

  • Never approach it.
  • Always walk your pets on a leash. 
  • Never run away from a coyote. Stand your ground, be loud and make yourself bigger and they'll likely run away.
  • If out jogging, fill up an empty soda can with coins or pebbles. Rattle this to scare them off. Air horns also work well, although neighbors may not like it.
