Town of Grand Coulee

Problem Coyotes

There have been some recent reports of coyotes roaming streets in town. If you spot a coyote within town limits please call or text Kelly, Pest Control Officer,  at 306-552-9506.

Should you encounter a coyote follow these safety tips:

  • Do not run or turn your back on the coyote.
  • Make noise. Yell, clap hands, blow a whistle and try to make yourself look larger.
  • Do not allow a coyote to get in between you and your pet or child—keep children close to you.
  • Keep pets under control to avoid creating additional stress for the animal.

As always it is best to try to avoid a close encounter in the first place. Remove attractants such as pet food left outside, fallen fruit, dirty BBQ grills and unsecured trash or compost. Always be aware of your surroundings.
