Mapping coyotes in the Alhambra area

Residents from Alhambra, Monterey Park, and Pasadena have recently spotted coyotes in the area.

One Alhambra resident who lives near Garvey and Montezuma avenues said a coyote visited his front yard on July 10 around 6:30 a.m. "It was roaming my front yard, then made its way to my patio to eat my dog's food," said Jerry C. "After that a pack of cats chased it down the street."

Another resident admired a coyote near Alhambra Road and Ethel Avenue. "I saw a beautiful looking coyote this morning at about 7:00 a.m.," said Igor K. on June 30. "It was magnificent specimen."

If you see a coyote and sense immediate danger, you should call 911, according to the city of Alhambra website. You can also report a coyote to the California Department of Fish and Game at (909) 484-0167 or the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care at (562) 940-6898.
