The purpose of this page is for Island residents to share information
about coyote sightings, lost pets suspected to be coyote related, and
other information that will be used to monitor the
coyote over-population problem on Fox Island. You may also choose
to share information on the FoxIslandNews Facebook
If you have encountered other forms of dangerous wildlife such as
bears, cougars, mountain lions, etc. please feel free to report that
Regarding the USDA's involvement in coyote control on Fox Island, the
funds for the original trapping work were expended about 2 years ago,
and while the USDA continued to provide additional services beyond the
funded work for a period of time, they are now at a point where private
residents must contract individually for further control measures.
If you are interested in contracting with the USDA, please
contact us for more information.
