Is it normal to see coyotes in packs?
  • In January and February, coyotes may gather in groups, looking for mates.
  • They tend to be more territorial and aggressive toward dogs at this time of year. Coyotes may try to entice your dog away and attack it to eliminate the threat. Keeping your dog leashed at all times is the best way to keep it safe.
  • In summer and fall, coyote families travel together in search of food.
  • Coyote sightings may be more common in summer and fall as young animals explore their surroundings. People make more frequent use of urban parks and green belt areas during this time, which also increases the possibility of encounters.
