Coyotes can be found throughout the state of Wisconsin. Occasionally we hear of a sighting in the area, but not often. Coyotes are scavengers and typically are not aggressive toward humans. Usually any loud noise will scare them off. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recommends removing bird feeders and outside pet containers; making loud noise, throwing rocks or spraying them with a hose when coyotes are sighted and leaving on outdoor lights at night. After a few days, they will often leave the area.
If you have concerns about a coyote near your home, you should call the DNR at 888-936-7463 (toll free) or visit the DNR website.
