We have been hearing from concerned homeowners about Coyotes in the neighborhood and in one case, in someone’s backyard. Coyotes and other desert creatures have always been in Cortessa and the surrounding desert area. For some reason they are recently more visible and less intimidated by the neighborhood surroundings. We have heard of no aggressive behavior, but you should be aware and take precautions particularly if you have cats or small dogs that are outside unattended.
Arizona Game and Fish provided the attached brochure with helpful information if you do encounter a Coyote.  The phone numbers below may be of assistance if a Coyote is contained and needs to be removed. The Sheriff’s Department or Rural/Metro will respond to a 911 call if there is dangerous encounter with a human or pet, but will not come out to remove a Coyote.
