Huntington Beach gets tougher with coyotes and could trap and kill animals who attack

Huntington Beach gets tougher with coyotes and could trap and kill animals who attack

Huntington Beach has its first plan for cracking down on coyotes that roam the city, including the possibility of trapping and killing animals involved in violent encounters.

City Council members voted unanimously Monday night to implement a coyote management plan that features a three-pronged strategy for protecting residents and pets from the feral canines.

The plan focuses primarily on educating residents on how to coexist with coyotes. It also includes stepped-up enforcement of the prohibition on feeding wild animals and implementation of a four-tiered, color-coded alert-and-response system for when coyotes interact with humans or pets.
