Four aggressive attacks by coyotes on Alta Canyada area pets within one week, last week, led one La Cañadan to find a way to educate the public and remove some of the danger. “We don’t want to kill the coyotes, just relocate them,” said Debbie Johannes, who recently started the “We love Finney and Friends hotline.” Johannes hopes residents will call the hotline, (818) 790-0476, if a pet is missing in the area, if there are unusual sightings of coyotes in “peculiar areas,” mountain lions or other aggressive predatory animals, or if someone knows of a pet that has been killed or injured by wild animals in the area, within the past five years.
