Coyotes on St. Pete Beach



Q: How should residents handle coyote sightings? Should they call the Sheriff or Animal Control or do something else?

A: As of now, the city has no coyote management plan in place.

“Many communities in Pinellas County are facing this issue,” City Manager Mike Bonfield says. “To my knowledge nobody has had any luck trapping the animals. We will be developing a plan to educate the community on the issues and the recommended steps they should take if they see a coyote.”
