Coyotes are becoming a growing problem in southeastern Wisconsin, especially in Milwaukee’s suburban and urban areas. These highly adaptable wild canines are becoming more comfortable around people, which is a problem. Coyote attacks on dogs and humans have significantly increased in recent years. Coyote sightings, even on Milwaukee’s streets and parks, have become more common recently as well. 

Coyotes are common throughout Wisconsin. They have grey-brown fur and a long, thick bushy tail. Coyotes are smaller than wolves but larger than foxes – roughly the size of a medium-sized dog. Coyotes will eat whatever food is available, deer, rabbits, rodents, and even domestic animals like dogs or chickens. 

COYOTE CONTROL: HOW TO GET RID OF COYOTES?

  • 1. Coyote Problem

    Advanced Wildlife Control is one of the only companies fully-equipped to handle coyote problems in southeastern Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Metro Area. Since coyotes are becoming a growing problem in suburban and urban areas, we work with city and town officials to handle these problem canines. 

  • 2. Trapping & Removal

    Our company believes in humane animal removal. Unfortunately, coyotes are animals we have to humanely put to sleep when caught due to their growing population and concerns. We recommend homeowners to keep an eye on their cats and dogs when let outside, especially during the evening and nighttime hours. 

  • 3. Coyote Prevention

    Eliminating food sources in your yards, such as bird feeders, pet food, garbage cans, and compost piles, can help keep coyotes away. Ensuring spaces underneath decks, sheds, and porches are closed off will also prevent coyotes from making dens on your property.

Coyotes will eat whatever food is available, primarily deer, rabbits, or rodents. However, they will eat berries and, unfortunately, attack domestic animals like cats, dogs, or chickens. 

Coyotes are common throughout Wisconsin in grasslands, farmlands, forests, and urban areas with good food and water sources. Coyotes make dens out of existing burrows or covered areas to sleep and have their young. Underneath porches, decks, and sheds are also potential areas where coyotes could build dens. 

Coyotes breed in late January and February. The litter size ranges from 5 to 7 pups born in early spring (April or May). The baby coyotes will stay together with the adults until the upcoming fall or winter before going off on their own.
