Reporting Coyote Sightings

With coyote sightings on the increase in College Terrace, the Santa Clara County Vector Control District wants to hear directly from the individuals who are making these observations to determine if there are behaviors that indicate a threat to human health and safety.

Residents should report all sightings by calling the District at (408) 918-4770 or reporting the sightings online. Residents are encouraged to call with new sightings on separate days if observations are made. The District is streamlining this process by having their front desk take the information/observations directly rather than passing the calls to a technician.

Residents can also call to request inspection services on their properties if desired.

See our previous post, Dealing With Neighborhood Coyotes, for more information.
