Coyote Sightings Report - 8/20/12

Please see below reports from Bel-Air neighbors:

#1 - Up on Linda Flora in 1200  block and just saw a huge coyote at 7:30pm Sunday.

#2 - This morning we had coffee outside (near Chalon & Carcassone), and one of our dogs suddenly became very alert.  We didn't see anything.  She continued to sit very still, staring across the yard.  She growled suddenly, and we saw a very large (and well fed) coyote stroll across, and down the side stairs to the lower yard.  We watched it go into the neighbor's property.  This was at about 8:30am.  The coyote was clearly not the least bit afraid of us. Had our dogs not been leashed, she'd have chased it and we'd have lost her!  We have to be vigilant about never, ever letting them out without leashes and careful observation.  

#3 - Coyote in back yard near 900 block Stone Canyon Road.  Led to a death of a pet around 8:30 pm last night.  Aggressive coyote, came within feet of 2 people. 


In addition to notifying our Bel-Air resources at, please report ALL coyote or aggressive wildlife sightings to West Los Angeles Animal Services @ 310-207-3156 to file a "Wildlife Sighting Report."

      [Tell them Officer Randall (the Officer in charge of our area) asked specifically that Bel-Air is to make, and the Shelter is to accept, phone reports.]

     You would file this report whether it was a mountain lion or a coyote.
