2019 VMP Coyote Management Plan

This Coyote Management Plan has been adopted by the Village of Machesney Park to provide for strategic action with the primary goal of increasing residents’ knowledge and understanding of how coyotes behave. This document also aims to plan for the management of coyote behavior with human safety being the primary priority. On an on-going basis, the Village will provide information pertaining to coyotes using online, social media and press releases. Coordination between Village Staff, the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department, and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will also be important to implementing this plan.
