Prince George RCMP reporting coyote attacks increasing in city

Prince George RCMP is issuing a warning to the public after a rise in recent reported coyote attacks in the city.

“Over the past week, we have received six different reports of coyotes attacking people within the city,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP. “We are currently working with the Conservation Officer Service on patrols and efforts to locate offending coyotes. We urge the public to avoid feeding coyotes, as it can habituate them to spending time around populated areas; they are not domestic animals and should not be treated as such.”

To report coyote conflicts or the unlawful feeding of dangerous wildlife, please call the Conservation Officer Service’s Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) line at 1-877-952-RAPP (7277). If the coyote is actively attacking you or someone nearby, call 9-1-1.
