nearby woods area in the Town of Verona. According to a resident… are very active in the neighborhood this Spring.
While normally fearful of people, coyotes can sometimes be spotted crossing yards or streets. The behavior is not unusual in residential areas. Coyotes are attracted to garbage, pet food left outdoors, and feral cat colonies. We urge residents not to feed coyotes and to seal garbage cans and eliminate other potential sources of food.
Coyote sightings generally require no response, other than making sure that pets and children are secure and that there are no likely food attractants present in the area. Small pets and children should never be left unattended, and dogs should be walked on a leash.
Best approach in your neighborhood is to be proactive. It is not ok to have a coyote in your yard. It can be helpful to carry a noisemaker or use a hazing technique – clashing pots and pans to scare the animal away.
If you see a sick, injured or orphaned coyote, please contact Animal Services at 608-243-0309. They would want to hear about it as that situation would realistically cause immediate danger.
