Coyote Caution
Nellie Gail Ranch by virtue of its open space design is a haven for wildlife, and one of our abundant wildlife guests is the ever present coyote.  We have had recent reports of coyote’s in close proximity to homes.  Coyotes play an important part in our eco-system helping to keep rodent and rabbit populations under control.  However, the City of Laguna Hills contracts with Mission Viejo Animal Services to respond to reports of nuisance animals. 
For sightings, no action is taken as sightings are common occurrences.  For aggressive interactions with pets or people, concerns may be reported to the Animal Services Center directly at (949) 470-3045.  Reports may also be submitted via e-mail to  Please provide Animal Services a clear description of concerns with who-what-when-why-where information via either the phone message or e-mail.  Of significant concern to Animal Services are also interactions where people have been threatened with aggressive behavior.  Coyotes that are reported to be sick, injured or deceased will also receive a response from Animal Services.
The following is the link to Mission Viejo Animal Services website: The following are some simple precautions all homeowners can take:Don’t allow small children to play unsupervised in unmaintained portions of your propertyAlways, keep pets on leash on trails and in parksKeep domestic animals sheltered and protectedDon’t leave food sources available for wild animals Our natural environment can sometimes present some discomfort, but the benefits when we weigh them out are so much greater!
