Campus Community,
 
Overnight on Saturday, November 7, there were several reports of a coyote spotted on the Sonoma State University campus. In an abundance of caution, we are informing the campus community about these reports, to ensure everyone who is present on campus is safe and vigilant. The coyote has not been spotted near the residential communities or the adjacent parking lots. SSU has notified the California Department of Fish and Wildlife of the coyote sightings.
 
If you do spot a coyote on campus, DO NOT approach the animal. Please notify University Police when you are in a safe location and tell them where you saw the coyote.
 
University Police offers safety escorts for any member of the campus community 24/7. Safety escorts may be requested by calling the University Police non-emergency line at (707) 664-4444. 

As a reminder, if you are ever in immediate or imminent danger, dial or text 911 for emergency response at any time. 
 
Stay safe and well, Seawolves.
