Attacks

Please view below  (Coyote Attacks) a detailed listing of attacks on people and pets across North America reported by the media – many go unreported and many missing pets go unaccounted for.

We would like people to be informed of the risks from coyotes. People with small dogs and children have a higher risk and should be aware of this.

The following information is a sample of available information online which disputes the position that coyotes are not an immediate threat to public safety; (we will add at the top of the page as we are made aware of incidents)
