Watch out for coyotes, especially if you live in or near the hillside area of Burbank. A community bulletin sent out by the city today and posted on its website, reminds folks that during the warm weather months — coyotes will venture down from the Verdugo Mountains into some of the local neighborhoods. They may be pests sometimes, but coyotes play an important role in the “… … ecosystem by helping to keep rodent populations under control,” according to the bulletin.
So here are some precautions: Do not feed coyotes or leave pet food outside, keep a tight lid on garbage cans, and never leave children or pets in the yard unattended. More tips on the city website. For questions contact Burbank Animal Control (818) 238-3340.
