Report a Coyote Encounter

Wildlife that live in our community include foxes, prairie dogs, squirrels, raccoons, coyotes, deer, owls, and cougars. Coyotes are one of the most controversial wildlife species in the City. Coyotes play an important role in urban environments. They help keep rodent populations down and scavenge on the flesh of dead animals to keep ecosystems clean.

Coyotes in populated areas, such as Centennial, are less fearful of people and are known to attack pets and approach people. If you have a coyote emergency call 911.

Follow the instructions below to report a coyote encounter or incident.
