Coyotes have long lived in L.A.'s local mountains, but have slowly begun to pop up in some of Southern California's most populated areas. In fact, coyote attacks in this region are on the rise. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says humans are largely to blame, as many residents either leave unattended food out in the streets, or worse, feed the animals directly. The problem is so bad in one local neighborhood, that members of one family took it upon themselves to place warning signs on lawns and sidewalks. While the coyote problem has garnered the attention of the L.A. City Council, the Department of Fish and Wildlife believes the issue could result in serious or even deadly consequences for the city.
