The Bayside Police Department has received a few calls lately about coyotes in the Village. While these animals are normally not threatening, a small percentage can prove more brazen around humans.
Bayside has employed several techniques to help deter coyotes. One unique solution that the Village has used is wolf urine. Wolf urine is successful because wolves are one of coyotes few natural predators, and coyotes will avoid areas were wolves the presence of wolves is sensed. Wolf urine has been placed around the Village where coyotes have been spotted, and has been successful thus far.
If you notice a coyote on or near your property or would like more information about Bayside's efforts to deter coyotes, please contact Captain Scott McConnell at (414) 351-8800.
