COYOTE SIGHTING AT LAC+USC HOSPITAL



Coyote sighted on grounds at LAC+USC Hospital



On Wednesday August 21, 2013 at 11:30 A.M. Deputy personnel were dispatched to 2010 Zonal Avenue in Los Angeles to the LAC+USC Hospital Campus after a coyote was seen on the grounds. Deputy personnel evacuated the area and contacted Animal Control. During the search for the coyote a den was discovered on hospital grounds. The area was rendered safe and no one was injured.



It is important to remember we share this area with the wildlife around us. Coyotes play an important role in the ecosystem, helping to keep rodent populations under control. They are by nature fearful of humans. Below is a link which will provide more information in regards to Coyotes and what to do when you see one.
