Urban Coyotes

Here at Reflection Riding, Wildlife Assistant Jeremy Hooper is studying human-coyote interactions in the city of Chattanooga.

“Through this study we hope to improve the human-coyote relationship in Chattanooga,” said Hooper. “You can help by reporting your coyote sightings, educating yourself about coyotes, and adopting the recommended measures to decrease human-coyote conflict!”

Please take time to fill out our survey if you’ve seen a coyote in your neighborhood!  With this information we hope to gain much needed knowledge about the “urban” coyote and implement best coyote management strategies.  Thank you!
