What To Do About Coyotes in Avon Lake
More and more residents are expressing concerns regarding the sightings of coyotes in the City of Avon Lake. Before the Environmental Committee of City Council can recommend any action that can be taken, we have to gather some facts associated with the problem or perceived problem.
In that regard, the City of Avon Lake has established a Coyote Hotline - call (440) 930-4126 or email. Please report the following facts:
- When did it occur
- Where did it occur
- What happened
- Who observed it including their contact information
- Special circumstances surrounding the incident, if any
The Environmental Committee will collect this data and take it with us when we attend the Ohio Wildlife Community Cooperative’s Annual Conference on November 15, 2016 at The Ohio State University in Columbus.
