Officials warn of coyotes sightings in New Jersey
FREEHOLD, N.J. - June 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- Health officials are warning residents that coyotes have been spotted in Monmouth County's central coastal areas.
County Regional Health Commission spokeswoman Sandra VanSant has declined to reveal which municipalities the coyotes reportedly have been seen in. She says they can travel for several miles so it is better if everyone is alerted to their presence.
The Asbury Park Press reports that the commission is warning residents not to feed coyotes, to avoid feeding cats outdoors and to remove bird feeders at night, cleaning up any seeds on the ground immediately. If residents see coyotes during the day that show no fear of humans or are aggressive, they should call police.
