Cayotes are protected., so when you call the city.. do they send someone out to set traps?

I am going to send you a DM on how I think you might be able to "solve" this issue.

Call your local garden center and find out what they have in stock for coyote repellent.

yah.., can you believe it.., spray away your troubles!

Trapping or killing is purpoted to be the solution.., but these darn things breed like bunnies!

If you cut off their food supply (pets) they will move on to more prosperous areas.., but then that just becomes someone elses problem.. ahh.., now that is the American Way.., NIMBY!!!!

I deliver San Antonio Express News and at 3:00,4:00AM I seen Coyote in and about Jung Road and Blaircrest. He ( I say he im not sure) is tall, thin and very very wild looking. Tuesday I stopped my car to watch him on Jung Road as he walked accross like he owned it. He came out of Flowing Path, he stopped and looked at me then was gone. For the people in or around here you should keep your small pets in at night. This coyote is big.
I want to get a photo of them, but they move fast. I often see a young women walking her dog on this road late at night with another young women. Not sure why you would walk at this hour.
But just wanted to give a heads up to people. Do any of you have photos?

What's the big deal? Coyotes are all over.

Coyotes are in every community practically, including large cities like New York and Los Angeles. They are one of the most adaptable species known to man. Speaking from first hand knowledge, I live in Converse and we have packs of coyotes there and have had them for years.

Here are some references that talk about the urban coyote problem.

Folks could minimize the influx of coyotes by not letting their pets, particularly cats, roam. Reduce the food source and you can help reduce the coyote population.

Now that sounded cool. Takes your breath away to see wildlife that you only see in books or TV in your own back yard.
In New Jersey I had Bear in my yard and that wasnt cool. The older women next door would put her trash out and he would be enjoying a meal each night. I sure dont miss that.
I also see a lot of fox here in San Antonio not red ones like back home, here you have the grey ones, cute.
