It is important to remember that we are living in an area inhabited by wildlife. One of the great things about Colorado is our parks, rivers and trails and the ability to see wildlife everywhere. However, this comes at a cost. As the Front Range continues to grow and urbanize, wildlife habitats are being reduced, human and wildlife encounters are increasing, and wildlife is losing its wariness of people. So what can we do to reduce these conflicts?
Sometimes it will be necessary for more intense hazing techniques to be used if there are a large number of coyotes or the coyotes engage in unacceptable behavior. In these cases the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Division will work with local governments to implement those techniques.
Like our trails, rivers and open space, wildlife is one of the things that makes living in Colorado special and we can all work together to keep it that way.
