Coyote Sighting Survey

A survey is being conducted to learn more about human-coyote interactions occurring in Metro Chattanooga, including areas in which coyotes are being seen and citizen concerns. With this information we hope to gain much needed knowledge about the "urban" coyote and implement best management strategies to decrease human-coyote conflict. Finally, we believe this will be a foundation for future Chattanooga coyote studies, while most importantly a proactive approach towards a coexistence based relationship between Chattanooga and our relatively new neighbor, the coyote.
