Belleair Bluffs Issues Coyote Notice
Belleair Bluffs has received several calls from residents reporting seeing coyotes in the area.
Please take notice:
- Safeguard your pets - keep cats and small dogs indoors. When walking small dogs, always keep them on a leash.
- Coyotes are most active from dusk to dawn. Avoid walking pets after dark.
- Bring pepper spray or a stick in case a coyote gets aggressive. Screaming or yelling and waving your arms sometimes doesn't work on coyotes that have lost their fear of humans.
- Store trash in covered, heavy-duty containers.
- Do not feed coyotes.
