Coyote sighting in Altadena

An Altadena resident tells that a coyote jumped the fence onto his property in the 1200 block of Avocado Terrance Friday morning. 

Jim Minges sent the following note: 

Our property is completely fenced with a 5 - 6 foot high chain link fence. .At 10 AM today we had a coyote jump the fence, probably in pursuit of our dog. Fortunately, I and two gardeners were in the yard, and were able to chase the coyote around the house, at which point he again jumped the fence and ran across my neighbor's yard to escape. 

I have advised those of my neighbors with small pets ... The problem seems to be getting out of hand, since I have also seen groups of 3 - 4 coyotes at Mendicino and Holliston, as many others have reported. Isn't there anything we or the authorities can do?
