Police Give Tips After Two Coyotes Spotted in Monroe TownshipLast Edited:
Police in Monroe Township are giving a few safety tips to residents after two coyotes were spotted in the area.
The coyotes were seen in the area of the Twelve Oaks Development off of Tuckahoe Road. They were eating a deer in a retention pond.
Officials are reminding all residents to never feed a coyote and remove sources of water to keep the dangerous animals out of your yard and to keep your family and pets safe.
Clear away brush and dense weeds from around your houses to reduce protective cover for coyotes and make the area less attractive to rodents and rabbits, which are a prime food source for coyotes.
If you see a coyote in the daytime that shows no fear of humans or if a coyote attacks a person, immediately contact your local police and the Department of Environmental Protection, or Division of Fish and Wildlife.
