MAYS POND– Coyote Sightings

The Neighborhood Watch Coordinator for Mays Pond reports that in the last few weeks, there have been at least three sightings of coyotes in the Mays Pond and Mill Creek areas.

While South Snohomish County has become built up in the last few decades, we still have wildlife living among us. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife provides information about a variety of wildlife to educate the public. For more information about coyotes you can go to:

Sometimes a wild animal may be considered to be a nuisance. Here is some information about how the Fish and Wildlife Department handles these animals:

The Fish and Wildlife Department recommends taking the following actions to discourage coyotes in your neighborhood:

  • Keep a close watch on your younger children, especially when there have been sightings of coyotes in your area.
  • Never feed coyotes.
  • Secure your garbage can so that coyotes, and other animals, do not have access to it.
  • Feed your pet dogs and cats indoors.
  • Don’t feed feral cats.
  • Keep your pet dogs and cats indoors, especially from dusk to dawn.
