Coyote Information

The Fountain Valley Police Department shares citizen concerns about the local coyote population. We want our neighborhoods to remain safe while coexisting with coyote populations in their natural habitats.

We have teamed up with the Department of Fish and Game, Orange County Animal Control, and the Park Rangers at Mile Square Park to identify wildlife issues.

Our goal is to inform and educate the public on how best to avoid inviting wildlife into our neighborhoods.
Report Sightings
Please report coyote sightings to the Fountain Valley Police Department at 714-593-4485, as we are augmenting the Department of Fish and Game tracking reports.

  • Pick up ripened fruit that has fallen to the ground
  • Cover trashcans
  • Bring cats and small animals inside at night
  • Do not leave food out for stray animals
  • Encourage your neighbors to take these steps
