Public Health Concerns

Coyotes are not considered to be a significant source of diseases that can be transmitted to humans.

Diseases Carried
They may carry rabies, but there have not been any reports in DuPage County in recent years. They may also carry distemper, sarcoptic mange, heartworm and other canine diseases, but transmissions are uncommon.

Pet Vaccinations
Always keep pets’ vaccinations current just in case.
