How you can Protect Yourself from Coyotes (video)


On April 25, 2018, the Greenburgh Town Board heard a very interesting presentation on coyotes. Kevin Clarke, wildlife biologist for the NYS DEC, Frank Vincenti of the Wild dog foundation and Greenburgh and Police Chief Chris McNerney gave a report.  Many residents have seen coyotes around town. The presentation  (link below) will provide tips on what to do if you are approached by a coyote.  How you can protect your pets from coyotes.  

Earlier this year a rabid coyote attacked residents in Hastings and at a condo near the village of Hastings. The rabid coyote was captured in Yonkers and there have been no other incidents. It's unusual for a coyote (unless sick) to attack human beings.

I hope that you will find this video to be of interest.  There's a lot of great and useful information in the link.  When I receive future calls, e mails about coyotes I will refer them to this link and will share the video with other officials who have similar concerns.
