Officials: Not much can be done about growing coyote population

Yes, there are more coyotes -- and no, there’s not much that can be done about it.

In fact, a county official told the Altadena Town Council: “This is a kind of a dangerous place for small pets --- there’s nothing that’s going to change that.”

Raymond Smith told the Altadena Town Council Tuesday night that Altadena’s coyotes are not necessarily refugees from the Station Fire, as is commonly assumed: Altadena’s coyotes are “wild, but they’re not some kind of pack that would normally live in the Angeles National Forest --- they’re urban coyotes, and they live amongst us.”
