IF you see a Coyote on the Greenbelt // Safety Alert
A few years ago, Borough residents indicated 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.
Please DO NOT place people or pet food outside for the wildlife such as deer or cats as it attracts other less appealing animals as well.
