Welcome to Scientific Wildlife Management.Com

Scientific Wildlife Management is a company that specializes in the removal of sick or habituated coyotes. We have a team of experienced trappers that are available 24/7 to respond to reports of coyote sightings. We are dedicated to the safety of both humans and domestic pets and strive to keep the coyote population healthy and wild.

A Message From Rob Erickson

Our program is designed to assist municipalities in monitoring coyote populations in their village. Unfortunately, when coyotes get diseased or habituated to humans they need to be removed. We are not interested in the removal of healthy coyotes. Our goals are to protect both domestic pets and humans from coyotes that have crossed the line, either because their health is compromised or have been habituated and have lost their fear of humans. Studies have shown that a coyote with Sarcoptic Mange is 5 times more likely to have a conflict with a human or domestic pet. When you fill out our sightings page, there are certain questions, and pictures that will help us decide if and when a coyote warrants removal. If your village is part of our network, they have shown that they are proactive in protecting both your public safety and that of your pets.
