Living in an area with Coyotes

Recently we have received calls regarding coyote sightings throughout the community. We are aware of the concerns and are working on addressing them with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), Walton County Animal Control, and/or a licensed trapper. The coyote sightings have included household garbage bags being disturbed at night.  As a reminder, bagged household garbage should be placed on the curb between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. each day and should never be left out overnight. 

Please visit the FWC website at the following link FWC Coyotes as it is important for owners to educate themselves regarding living in an area with urbanized coyotes and what you should do if you encounter a one.
