Santa Clara County officials received 11 calls from concerned residents fearing coyote attacks in 2010 — a jump from the five calls averaged between 2002-2009. Santa Clara County Vector Control, which handles such incidents, attributes the jump to this year’s increased coyote population. Wildlife officials urge residents to keep a safe distance if they see coyotes and supervise pets and children when they’re outside.
