A critical element of the City’s “Coyote Nuisance Management and Response Plan Policy” is the education and awareness of residents. Wauwatosa’s educational campaign primarily focuses on how residents can coexist with coyotes. Examples of the City’s educational outreach efforts, as set forth in the adopted policy and action plan, include: brochures, detailed information and appropriate links made available on the City’s website, educational signs posted in appropriate parks and open spaces and at those locations experiencing an increase in coyote activity. The education of the public is an important tool for the coexistence of residents and coyotes in a safe environment.
