Neighborhood Coyote Program
As interactions increase between residents and coyotes, the City of San Marino is working diligently with the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) Neighborhood Coyote Program to monitor, track, and respond to coyote inquiries and concerns. The Neighborhood Coyote Program is a regional approach aimed to address, educate, and report safety issues caused by coyotes within the San Gabriel Valley. San Marino has joined this regional effort with nine other surrounding cities to ensure our residents have access to proactive monitoring and response services and are educated and encouraged to mitigate coyote behaviors. Please click the link above for resources, upcoming events, and reporting tools. Materials are available in English, Chinese, and Spanish.
This regional effort stems from the collaborative work of the SGVCOG Coyote Management Task Force, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the County of Los Angeles, the University of California, and other external stakeholders. All residents are encouraged to report coyote activity to the Neighborhood Coyote Hotline at (626) 278-8039, or at the link below.
Please only call 9-1-1 if you are feeling threatened or are in danger. By reporting your sightings through the hotline or online form, the Neighborhood Coyote Program and the City will be able to provide much better and proactive coyote response services.
