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.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife website offers a lot of helpful information on what to do if you come in contact with a coyote or other wildlife.
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.
Town Board members have researched coyote issues and met with other regional agencies to share ideas on the topic. The result is a Coyote Management Plan that offers solutions the Town can implement to reduce fear and conflicts people may have with coyotes. It also prescribes the Town's response when coyote activity could pose a safety risk to people. Residents should use the Coyote Incident Report to report coyote activity in Foxfield. The Town will track the information submitted.
