Long Beach Animal Care Services (LBACS) reminds residents to keep the summer months fun and safe for all family members including pets.
There have been additional reported sightings of coyotes in the Bluff Heights area recently (along Vista St.) and at least one coyote-related animal incident. BHNA has notified Long Beach Animal Care Services (LBACS) of this possibility so that they can be on alert for any future sightings and/or incidents. LBACS confirms we do have coyotes in several areas throughout the City, with the potential for them to show up in many different areas at any time.
Please immediately report all coyote sightings to LBACS (562) 570-7387 any time of day. Or you can e-mail them at AnimalControl.Dispatch@longbeach.gov.
