WILDLIFE IN FOXFIELD
Wildlife sightings are frequently reported in Foxfield. In most situations, people and wildlife can coexist. The key is to respect the wildness of wildlife. Most dangerous and potentially harmful encounters occur because people fail to leave the animals alone. Wildlife should not be harassed, captured, domesticated or—in most cases—fed. Intentional or inadvertent feeding is the major cause of most wildlife problems, and it is illegal to feed wildlife in Colorado.
Coyotes are a fact of life in our area: they have adapted well to living in this environment and their numbers can't be impacted over the long-term by attempts to control or reduce their population. Under State regulations, coyotes can't be relocated to other areas. However, communities can safely coexist with coyotes if they are given the right tools.
Foxfield residents are encouraged to report coyote incidents using the online form.
