Coyote Sightings and Continued Management on Skidaway Island
Over the past few months, the Public Works Department’s trail cameras have captured the presence of coyotes, some traveling in packs of two-to-four.
USDA Representative, Jonathan Smith, developed a management plan to cull the coyote population which includes thermal scopes and trapping methods.
Our depredation permit (which is required to cull certain wildlife such as deer, wild hogs, and migratory birds) also was modified to allow for the culling of coyotes.
The USDA actively is working throughout the community to decrease the presence of coyotes.
If you have a specific concern related to wildlife, please report the issue by calling Landings Public Works (598-5509). You also can report issues via SeeClickFix on the Association’s website (www.landings.org/service-requests) or by using your TLA app.
