A coyote(s) has been spotted in West LA over the last week, specifically the Federal Ave and Missouri Ave area. Animal Control has limited actions on wild animals such as raccoons and coyotes. They do not trap or kill raccoons or coyotes. The document below will provide reasonings for their actions. 

The recommendation is to keep your pets and pet food indoors. Coyotes do prey on stray animals so please be careful. 

REPORT BACK ON THE COYOTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (20 meg file)

A motion dated May 24, 2016 (Buscaino - Koretz) directed Los Angeles Animal Services (LAAS) to report back to the Personnel and Animal Welfare (PAW) Committee on or before July 1, 2016 with the following items: 1. A detailed plan on the Department’s Coyote Management Program (Program); 2. Resources that are currently deployed to implement that Program; 3. Recommendations for improvements to that Program that will further control the coyote population in the City’s residential neighborhoods; 4. Including any ordinance or City policy that will support this effort.
