Coyote Sightings & ReportingThe Elmhurst Police Department has continued to field community concerns regarding coyote sightings in the residential area. To expedite a proactive response to this concern, the City has reached out to an Urban Coyote Specialist with a strong record of positive results in other metro-area communities.

To help the specialist better understand our coyote population and patterns, the community is being asked for their assistance. Residents who observe a coyote in their neighborhood are asked to go to and report the sighting and condition of the animal. Residents who have questions about the online reporting process can contact the police department at (630)530-3050. As coyotes are wild animals, residents should never actively seek out or search for them.
