Coyotes: our other neighbors in the Hollywood Riviera

The size of a coyote litter depends on the availability of food and water. An average urban coyote litter is between 5-7 pups. If food and water are abundantly available then the litter can be as large as 11. March is the time of year when coyotes den in preparation for pups. Food availability in March and April will contribute to this year’s adult coyote population.

Coyotes are seen in the Hollywood Riviera daily. Please follow these tips to eliminate easy access to food, water, and shelter:

  • Do not feed wildlife (including squirrels and feral cats).
  • Do not leave pet food outdoors.
  • Do not leave pets unsupervised.
  • Pick up fallen fruit from trees. Avocados, citrus, and other fruit account for nearly 25% of an urban coyote’s diet.
  • Secure trash bin lids.
  • Trim any excess vegetation to deter coyotes from denning on or near your property.

And please take care to keep your pets safe!
