The Eastern coyote is firmly established in New York. They live in New York as an integral part of our ecosystem. People and coyotes can usually coexist if the natural fear of people that coyotes have is maintained.

Some tips on dealing with coyotes,

  • Do not feed coyotes
  • If you see a coyote, be aggressive in your behavior - make loud noises, wave your arms, throw sticks and stones.
  • Do not allow pets to run free.
  • Do not feed pets outside.
  • Make any garbage inaccessible to coyotes and other animals.
  • Eliminate availability of bird seed. Coyotes are attracted to the concentration of birds and rodents that come to feeders. If you do feed birds, clean up waste seed and spillage.
  • Teach children to appreciate coyotes from a distance.
  • Ask your neighbors to follow these same steps.
