Why do coyotes visit schoolyards?
  • Coyotes visit schoolyards for the same reason they investigate backyards and laneways; they are searching for food, such as leftover lunches and food wrappers.
  • Children should place litter in schoolyard garbage cans that have secure lids or put all their litter in garbage cans indoors. Garbage containers should be cleaned out daily to reduce odours.
