Coyote Information

The City of Geneva is taking a proactive approach toward educating the public about coyotes living in suburban communities. Please take time to review the educational resources available on our website on how to deal with these wild animals.

Training Workshop

Geneva residents were invited to attend a coyote training workshop presented by the Humane Society of the United States in 2015 at the Public Works Department. Lynsey White Dasher, the Humane Society's Director of Humane Wildlife Conflict Resolution, talked about the following topics:

Background on coyote ecology and behavior Solutions for coyote conflicts
The latest research on urban coyotes Keeping coyotes out of yards and neighborhoods
Why are coyotes in our community Tips for protecting pets
Types and causes of human-coyote conflicts How to haze coyotes


Coyote Management Plan Approved


The City Council approved a new coyote management plan in March 2015. The plan is intended to serve as a tool to increase residents’ knowledge and understanding of how coyotes behave and provides guidelines to live compatibly with these wild animals.
