According to Coyote Cacher, a pet cat was killed by a “large”coyote in the area of Holder Street and Orange Avenue, south of Cypress College, on Wednesday, August 14.
In February 2019, another coyote encounter resulted in the death of a cat in the area of Lawrence Street and Juanita Street, west of the most recent incident.
Further away, a third coyote encounter also resulted in the death of a pet cat, this in the area of West Ravenswood Drive in May 2019.
The last encounter we reported occurred in June near Cedar Glen Park.
Coyote Cacher reported that this most recent attack was announced on social media. That’s okay, but does not help the City of Cypress to collect data in a way that Coyote Cacher does.
If you have not yet done so, please consider signing up to use Coyote Cacher in order to provide the City with the information it needs to better address the worsening coyote problem.
