Wildlife Services has been actively trapping coyotes in your neighborhood for several months now. A total of 4 coyotes have been removed, and I estimate that two to three more coyotes need to be removed. The good news is that the most recent capture (19 February 2008) was a bred alpha female weighing 33 pounds, so there should not be any active coyote den in your neighborhood this year . The remaining coyotes were avoiding the area after the capture (this is typical), and traps were removed 22 February 2008. Trapping was scheduled to resume when coyote activity resumed or observations were reported. The first report of coyotes in your neighborhood received after 19 February 2008 was received 28 February (non 311 telephone call). Consequently, trapping was scheduled to resume 03 March 2008. Please contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.
