Project Coyote raised over $619,000 in donations and nothing has been spent on coyotes.


Project Coyote has spent zero dollars on creating ONE coyote sanctuary, ONE study or creating ONE habitat improvement project.

The well intending conservation organization John Muir Association was misled regarding the accomplishments of Ms. Fox and were advised of the truth prior to their award presentation in 2016. Unfortunately, the John Muir Association decided to give Camilla Fox the Conservationist of The Year award in part for her role in the Marin County Livestock Protection Plan anyway. The Marin plan results in far more coyotes dying annually than when USDA trappers focused on offending animals.

Project Coyote predator friendly rancher Kelli Hendricks says coyote fathers help raise coyote families, unlike human fathers. This joke is inappropriate to say in front of young children but that's ok. Project Coyote admits to using children to manipulate the public. 

Animal rights activists claim trapping coyotes does not work. More aggressive coyotes will take their place? Not true! Selective trapping works.  STUDY LINK

Project Coyote founder Camilla Fox makes specific claims about charges being brought against a hunter who accidentally shot CDFW warden Bob Pera. Fox made these claims weeks before the El Dorado County District Attorney received the case.   This would lead the average person to believe one of two scenarios 1 she received leaked information which is illegal or 2 she is simply making it up. 

Although there is not one single peer reviewed study documenting the effectiveness of hazing on habituated coyotes, Project Coyote claims hazing a solution even though it may be considered illegal by CDFG Code 251.1 


Coexistence will only artificially increase the coyotes carrying capacity making the problem worse.  

Coyotes at the Gate - A 2007 program regarding the rising and continued aggressive behavior of coyotes in and around Los Alamitos.  Interview of canid biologist with over 40 years of experience dealing with coyotes Dr. Robert Timm. Produced by John Underwood. 

The Pasadena Humane Society was responsible for the City of Arcadia's coyote education program which was filled with misrepresentations. Council member April Verlato pointed out the failure of their program along with their hypocrisy of killing 43 dogs that year.

Shaking a can of pennies, that will do the trick!!! 

A coyote in a residential area was not scared away, even after landscaper yelled at him he just stood there and stared at him. Even when he got closer to the coyote with the mower the coyote just moved out of the way a little.
