In response to concerns from residents about increased coyote sightings, the Public Safety Department shared information from the Humane Society of the United States. It includes guidelines for discouraging neighborhood coyotes and how to effectively change coyote behavior. Among the many recommendations, the Humane Society encourages people to carry a whistle when walking in areas where coyotes are known to wander. The loud noise of the whistle is effective in scaring off a coyote.
