Weekly Coyote Tip

Spring time is when coyotes will start to give birth to pups.  Most litter sizes range from 4-7 pups, depending on certain factors such as available food sources and density of coyotes in the area.  When the coyote pups are born they will stay in the den for several weeks.  Once the mother of pups feel they are ready to leave the den she will start to teach them how and what to hunt.   Once the pups start to leave the den they may be an increase in coyote sighting in the area. 


Please report any coyote sighting to the Torrance Police Department the following ways:
