Coyote Sightings

coyotePlease be aware that there has been an increase in reported Coyote sightings within the Town of New Castle.

If you see a coyote do not approach or feed these animals. Close all garbage cans holding food and be sure not to leave any pet food outside.

Pets should not be left outside unattended. And while coyote attacks on humans are very rare, small children should have adult supervision while outdoors.

If you see a coyote, making loud noises and displaying forceful behavior - including waving your arms and throwing sticks or stones - will normally scare them away.

Please report all sighting to the New Castle Animal Control Officer James Moore at 914-238-6889.
