Coyote advisement in Connecticut

Posted on Aug 18, 2014

I thought this coyote “warning” (really a press release that should be called a notification or information) released by the police department in my hometown of Stratford, Connecticut and the State of Connecticut DEEP Wildlife Division was interesting, both in content and approach. It contains a lot of helpful facts and tips so that everyone can enjoy the outdoors and know what to do if they see a coyote. The more we develop our world and make it favorable to certain species, taking away their habitat in the process, the more we will encounter them and have to adapt ourselves. Interacting with wildlife does not have to be frightening if you know what to expect and how to handle the situation. I wrote about coyotes twice this year while in Connecticut, first on this increasing occurrence and then on how we’re harming them:
