Step 1: To report coyote sightings email the RCSD via the Contact Us Page on our website. Select "Coyote Sighting Log" from the Subject Drop Down Menu. Include your name, address, phone number, time and date of the sighting along with a brief description.
Step 2: You must also report the sightings to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife by following the link: https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/myaccount/login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fWIR.
Orange County Animal Control Services presides over animal control in the Rossmoor Community and animal control is strictly under their jurisdiction. Animal Control will only respond to coyote sightings if the animal is injured or there is a threat to human life. To report such injuries or threats (i.e. stalking/attacks) call Animal Control at 714-935-6848. After hours you may call 714-935-7158. If you do not get a response Dial 9-1-1.
See the link below for additional guidelines regarding wildlife reporting.
Remember, the RCSD does not have jurisdiction over wildlife. The coyote log is kept for data collection purposes only in order to recognize trends and increase local community awareness.
