Animal control is working to assuage fears over Coyotes in the Glendale area, saying the animals pose little threat to humans.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Officials are explaining that coyotes are very afraid of people and they do not harm humans. Instead, coyotes feed on small rodents such as mice and rats.
People should not approach, nor attempt to capture or kill the coyotes which are a very important part of the ecosystem, even sometimes in suburban areas.
Animal control officials are telling people who are concerned about the wild animals that coyotes are not likely to threaten their pets. If a coyote is observed in an area that it should not be in, residents are encouraged to contact animal control, and they are reminded that coyotes will flee if confronted with loud noises or water.
