In urban areas, unlike in rural areas, lethal management is not the primary method for controlling coyotes for a variety of reasons, including laws prohibiting discharging a firearm within municipal boundaries and the urban public’s generally low tolerance for killing wildlife. Moreover, the long-term efficacy of lethal coyote management is questionable regardless of where it is implemented. Thus, an assortment of non-lethal management practices are emphasized in urban areas, especially hazing coyotes. Hazing involves any variety of tactics to scare a coyote away from humans in order to re-instill fear of humans in coyotes. Although hazing coyotes is frequently and commonly suggested as an effective non-lethal management technique, there is no research to support the effectiveness of this management recommendation in terms of changing coyote behavior toward humans and domestic pets
