The past few years we have had Coyote Sighting on Greenbelt // Safety Alert
The Borough Office has received two reports from Borough residents that coyotes have been sighted in the Capital Area Greenbelt, and in one yard adjacent to the Greenbelt on Park Terrace. In speaking with neighboring municipalities, as well as the Pennsylvania Game Commission, these sightings are not uncommon and should not be a significant cause for concern.
These coyotes, although they may be closer to homes and human presence than you might like, are in fact living in their natural habitat. The Game Commission confirms that coyotes have been found in all 67 counties in Pennsylvania as well as center city Philadelphia. This is not to say that residents should be complacent. On the contrary, people should do what they can to discourage coyotes from coming near residential areas and recreational spaces.
There are some precautions that you can take, and some information that you should be aware of. The US Department of Agriculture has provided a comprehensive fact sheet that you can access below
