Steve D Posted March 7, 2021 Share Posted March 7, 2021 Coyote breeding season extends into March, with new pups typically arriving in April and May. During this time of year, we tend to get more reported sightings of these wily creatures. While coyotes will typically avoid contact with humans, conflicts with people and pets may result as coyotes tend to be territorial around den sites during the spring through mid-summer period as they forage almost constantly to provide food for their young. To reduce the potential for conflicts, DEC recommends that the public follow the common-sense tips outlined below. If a coyote is exhibiting bold behaviors and shows little or no fear of people, contact your Regional Wildlife Office or, in emergency situations, the local police department. For more information on the coyote and preventing conflicts with coyotes, visit these DEC websites: Eastern Coyote and Coyote Conflicts.
