Torrance City Council approves RFP for Year Round Coyote Trapping
At the May 4, 2021 Torrance City Council meeting, Councilman Aurelio Mattucci moved to bring back an item with the results of a Request for Proposal aka RFP on both a 5 months a year program and also Year Round Trapping Program.
"The goal is to bring down the urban coyote population to much safer levels" stated Aurelio Mattucci.
The council will decide on year round trapping before October 2021. This is when the current 5 month trapping program is due to start. Ideally the city will start trapping again in October and not stop until they have this coyote issue under control. Councilman Aurelio Mattucci stated that this is a Public Safety issue, not just a coyote population issue. "These urban coyotes will jump into people's backyards and kill household pets in seconds", Mattucci said.
