North Wildwood police warn residents of coyote sightings

ATTENTION RESIDENTS: We have received several reports of a coyote spotted in North Wildwood.

Coyotes are opportunistic feeders, and pet owners should use caution when letting out your cat or dog. As a precaution, please keep your indoor/outdoor cats inside fore next several days. When walking your dogs, remain vigilant to your surroundings, and keep them close to you.

Coyotes are generally nocturnal, but it is not uncommon to see them during day time hours. Coyote attacks on people are very rare, as they are mostly skittish of people. However, families with small children should be cautious. DO NOT attempt to feed or approach the coyote, as they may carry infectious diseases. Coyotes should be left alone.

Please report any emergencies to 911.
