Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation's Natural Resources staff is interested in collecting CASUAL observations on the coyote population of the Charlotte area. Our staff collect information on all of our wildlife, including coyote. Why? So County biologists can better understand the habitat, movement and issues that impact our urban wildlife and it's effects on the citizens of Mecklenburg County.
Mecklenburg County Natural Resources staff DOES NOT provide trapping, removal or control services for rabid or nuisance wildlife, including coyote.
NOTE: Coyotes are usually very shy and non-threatening, however, if you encounter an aggressive coyote you should call 911 to report the encounter.
