CITY OF ELMHURST: Elmhurst residents can now report coyote sightings
City of Elmhurst issued the following announcement on Sept. 3.
The Elmhurst Police Department continues to field community concerns regarding coyote sightings in residential areas. To expedite a proactive response to this concern, the City has reached out to an Urban Coyote Specialist with a strong record of positive results in other metro-area communities.
To help the specialist better understand our coyote population and patterns, the community is being asked for their assistance.
Residents who observe a coyote in their neighborhood are asked to go to http://scientificwildlifemanagement.com/report-a-sighting and report the sighting and condition of the animal.
Residents who have questions about the online reporting process can contact the police department at 630-530-3050.
As coyotes are wild animals, residents should never actively seek out or search for them.
