Lake View Ave: Coyotes Have No Respect For Fences

Russell writes: "We woke up this morning to the sound of our chickens making some very unusual and panicky sounds. I looked out the window to see a big coyote inside our fenced yard, running around the perimeter of our chicken coop and trying to find a way inside. The chickens were not pleased, but stayed safe. Our local urban wildlife is obviously hungry."

I've always seen more coyotes in our neighborhood during the day than night.  Learn more about living with coyotes: City of LA Animal Services
