This time of year, coyotes are breeding and will soon be rearing pups. Because coyotes may act more aggressively during this period, MDC recommends pet owners be especially watchful when letting dogs and cats outside in areas where coyotes live.
MDC protects and manages Missouri's fish, forest, and wildlife resources. We also facilitate your participation in resource-management activities, and we provide opportunities for you to use, enjoy and learn about nature. Read more about our mission.
