On October 3rd, 2018, L.A. City Councilmember Mitch Englander introduced a motion to direct L.A. Animal Services to report on implementing a trap and release coyote management plan. CLAW opposes a policy of trap and release, which has been shown to result in coyote deaths and an increase in human-coyote conflict. Furthermore, such a policy would be illegal under California state law (Title 14, § 465.5).
CLAW has filed a letter in opposition to this motion, but your voice is needed to make sure this misguided proposal goes no further. Please take a moment to use the form below to add your comment to the Council File.
