“There’s not much the county can do to ward off coyotes,” says county chairman Tim Lee. He goes on to explain that officials can’t do anything to contain these animals.
Wildlife biologist Brent Womack adds, “You’re going to find them from swamps to wetlands, from urban areas to suburban.”

“Confusion between behaviors of coyotes and dogs can lead to the wild animals getting the blame for actions of their domestic counterparts.”
Womack concludes that coyotes may be chased off by throwing rocks, making loud noises, or creating other such novel deterrents.
