While some residents may call for the removal of all coyotes in the area, research has shown that once coyotes are removed, others quickly replace them.
However, if there is a nuisance coyote on your property that you would like removed, the following individuals are licensed through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to provide residential trapping/removal services for coyotes:
- Brad Lundsteen, Suburban Wildlife Control: 630-443-4500
- Gary Zirves, Illinois Wildlife Control: 815-337-2719
Please note that trapping and removing a coyote is illegal in Illinois without the proper permits. A property owner or tenant must obtain a Nuisance Animal Removal Permit to trap and remove most species of wildlife.
