Coyotes are becoming all-too-familiar in East Long Beach.Officials have put a "wildlife watch" into effect.

The California Department of Fish and Game says daytime activity by coyotes is abnormal.

It means the animals are losing their fear of humans.

They also have a number of small pets missing.

Fish and Game says secure your pet, and don't leave any pet food out overnight.
