Urge your governor to work with your state's legislature and local county commissioners to ensure that humans don't further encroach on wild lands. Only then will we see a decline in the amount of these "urban coyote attacks."


Find your Governor's contact information


You've seen the headlines: Coyotes are attacking humans with more and more frequency. One wandered into a Chicago sandwich shop. Another lives in Central Park in New York. Five people have reported coyote attacks in the Denver area. Five coyotes have been killed in Austin so far this year. Our government spends millions of dollars to trap, shoot and poison more than 90,000 "urban coyotes" every year.

But the real problem isn't coyotes attacking humans, it's human suburban sprawl that increasingly takes over the habitat of wild animals like coyotes. Rather than hunting down and killing animals whose habitat has been destroyed by human subdivisions, we should enact stronger urban planning laws that protect the habitat of our nation's wildlife.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
