Please see below a note from a Bel-Air neighbor:
I was walking my 35 lb dog west on Savona Road near the intersection with Roberto Lane when a coyote came running out of the private road at that intersection, running east on Savona. A minute later a second coyote followed the first. Both of them saw us on the sidewalk but fortunately they kept to the other side of the road, and disappeared down Savona. This was about 10:30 pm January 30.
In addition to notifying our Bel-Air resources at email@example.com, please report ALL coyote or aggressive wildlife sightings to the below authorities. It is imperative they receive this information as it clearly depicts the serious issue facing Bel-Air and its neighboring communities.
You MUST immediately contact the West Los Angeles Animal Services at 310-207-3156 and file a Wildlife Sighting Report. If they say that they do not accept reports over the phone, say that you were told by Officer Randall (the Wildlife Officer in charge of our area) that they are supposed to accept phone reports. You would file this report whether it was a mountain lion or a coyote.
Also, please file a report with the Dept of Fish and Game at 562-596-3885.
We need to keep notifying the appropriate wildlife authorities about this serious problem that threatens human safety.
Please continue to contribute to the monitoring program by emailing all sightings firstname.lastname@example.org.Information is power when it comes to how we will address the coyote problem in Bel-Air & West L.A.
