Mating season starts in mid-January and ends in the early part of March. During these months, coyotes can become more aggressive as they protect their young and search for food. Although the risk is greater during mating season, the animals always pose a risk to smaller pets.

Hazing means to scare away the animals in humane ways either by making a loud noise or throwing objects that are not food at the coyotes. This will hopefully encourage the animals to stay away from people and pets in the future.
