BOULDER, Colo. — The city of Boulder has finalized a coyote management plan in the Boulder Creek area.

The plan is specific to a part of the city where there have been several encounters between people and coyotes recently.

The plan includes hazing of coyotes by city workers and volunteers to try to make them wary of humans again. Coyote hazing begins Friday.

People who travel on the Boulder Creek Path should be aware of increased coyote activity.
