COYOTES IN WALNUT
Coyotes are found throughout California and they play an important role in the ecosystem. Without coyotes, the local rodent population would increase unchecked. Understanding and knowledge is the key to coexisting with wild animals such as coyotes. Information related to wild animals is provided by the Animal Care and Control Department of Los Angeles County and the California Department of Fish and Game.
