Coyote Sightings Near Saxon Woods Road - What to Do if You See One

coyoteResidents have reported several coyote sightings in recent weeks in the area of Mamaroneck and Saxon Woods Roads and in the area of Meadow Road, so we’d like to share some information from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation about what to do if you should come across a coyote.

According to NYS DEC, if you see a coyote:


-Be aggressive in your behavior – stand tall and hold arms out to look large. If a coyote lingers for too long, then make loud noises, wave your arms, throw sticks and stones.

-Contact your local police department and DEC regional office for assistance if you notice coyotes exhibiting "bold" behaviors and having little or no fear of people, or if you see them repeatedly during the daytime in a human-populated area or near residences. Seeing a coyote occasionally throughout the year is not evidence of bold behavior.

-Do not allow pets to run free. Supervise all outdoor pets to keep them safe from coyotes and other wildlife, especially at sunset and at night. Small dogs and cats are especially vulnerable.

-Teach children to appreciate coyotes from a distance.

Please check the DEC website below for further guidance and information.

Of course, if there is ever an emergency involving a coyote, please contact the Scarsdale Police Department at (914) 722-1200. A police officer will be dispatched. DEP Regional Office: 845-256-3000
