We have received several reports of coyotes feeding off of bread and seed/corn piles left in parks and parkways by the public throughout Milwaukee County. Direct or indirect feeding of urban wildlife is one of the leading causes of habituation of wild animals such as coyotes, raccoons, and foxes. It is very important to not feed a wild animal 'human food items' because non-natural food items will most likely cause more harm and will not provide nutritional benefits. Urban wildlife can meet their dietary needs from the natural food base that is available to them in our urban natural areas. Preventing habituation of urban wildlife is key in promoting a positive coexistence!
