Coyote guidelines for the City of Myrtle Beach

AUGUST 24, 2022

What do I need to know about coyotes along the Grand Strand? The City of Myrtle Beach provides a handy guide for helping to control coyotes in urban areas. Visit for more information. Coyotes are common across South Carolina, even in city settings. Here are some general safety rules to protect your pets from coyotes…

• Allow pets outside only when you are with them, especially at night.
• Keep pet food and water inside; if you must feed outside, bring dishes in when your pet has eaten.
• Keep garbage containing food well secured.
• Keep dogs on a leash in public area; never leave them outside unattended.
• Discourage or harass coyotes: aggressively make the coyote uncomfortable if it is invading your space.
