What are my options If I have a coyote on my property that is becoming to comfortable with humans.

So I have had a young male coyote that has started visiting my property more frequently. My concern is he is becoming to comfortable with having humans around. He is coming to my porch and sitting next to it while we are inside making noise. I want to know what my options are. I have small children and yesterday my 4 yr old went outside to play and found him next to the porch. He did not run off immediately. What options do I have? He doesn't come everyday, but at least a couple of times a week.

Answer

If you are outside city limits and you have a hunting license, you could kill it.

If you are not in a position to do that, contact the Fish and Game office in your area to report it.
