Report a Coyote Sighting…
An important facet of the “Coyote Nuisance Management and Response Plan Policy” is for citizens to report coyote sightings to assist in understanding the urban coyote population. To do so, the City would encourage residents to go to Milwaukee County Coyote Watch for coyote sightings. The webpage will have information about various types and locations of coyote related incidents/interactions within the county.
This is part of a larger effort by Milwaukee County Parks Department, in conjunction with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology’s Urban Canid Project, to prepare a coyote management plan for Milwaukee County.

Report a Coyote Incident…
In the event that a pattern of nuisance coyote activity is identified or that a pet attack is verified, and upon resident request, the City will engage a contracted animal removal specialist in an attempt to locate and remove the nuisance coyote(s).
Nuisance coyote activity, for the purpose of this response plan, is considered as a pattern of aggressive coyote activity that has been established through multiple reports of threatening interactions towards humans and/or a report of a verified pet attack.
If preferred, paper copies of report forms are available for pickup at City Hall-Administration and at the Police Department. Otherwise, residents may have a blank report form mailed to their residence simply by contacting the Administration Office at (414) 479-8915 or the Police Department at (414)-471-8430. Staff will be able to assist you over the phone. Completed paper-copy reports should be submitted to the Clerk’s office in City Hall.
