Coyote Sightings

  • 2017-03-27

27 March 2017 - It has been reported there is a coyote that has been sighted in the Oromocto West area along Carpenter Drive. Residents are reminded if they encounter a coyote to:

• never approach or touch a coyote. Always give it an escape route;
• back away from a coyote and remain calm. Do not turn your back on or run from a coyote;
• if the coyote is approaching, respond aggressively: wave your arms, shout, throw rocks or sticks, and
maintain eye contact;
• carry a flashlight, an audible alarm or whistle at night to scare off coyotes; and
• do not let dogs chase a coyote.

Prevention is the best tool to minimize conflicts with
coyotes and other wildlife. Follow these management
strategies around your property and encourage your
neighbours to do the same:

• never feed coyotes;
• do not give coyotes access to garbage. Garbage should be secured in sealed containers with locking lids;
• keep pets indoors. Never let pets roam at large;
• feed dogs and cats indoors and keep pet food indoors;
• prevent access to fruit and compost. Pick fruit as soon as it ripens. Keep compost in containers that keep
coyotes out while allowing for ventilation. Do not compost meat scraps;
• do not leave any type of food outdoors; and
• close off spaces under porches, decks and sheds.
