Austin: Adopt a Humane Coyote Management Plan

Thanks to people like you, the City of Austin has created a humane management plan for coyotes. The new policy focuses on addressing coyote conflicts by reducing food attractants in neighborhoods, educating residents about how to protect their pets and using proven nonlethal aversive conditioning (or hazing) techniques to deter coyotes who have become too bold. It also stipulates that lethal control of coyotes would be limited to rare cases of a coyote attack on a person or an incident that presents a true risk to human safety. To help other animals, you can take action here.
