Neighbors fear coyotes in house could turn dangerous
Neighbors on the street say they fear the roaming coyotes, whose pups have been raised on the street, could turn territorial and dangerous.
Los Angeles County officials will assess the area around Brockmont Drive this week to decide where to set traps to catch the coyotes.
Once caught, the animals will be euthanized because they cannot be returned into the wild, said Ken Pellman, a spokesman for the L.A. County Agricultural Commissioner/Weights and Measures.
"Our focus is on human life," Pellman said. "A human life takes precedence over a coyote’s life."
