Nearly every week during the last few months, we have heard reports of local residents spotting a coyote.
The Town of Mamaroneck is providing a specialist to answer people’s questions.
From the Town of Mamaroneck Supervisor’s Office:
The Town of Mamaroneck has engaged a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Wildlife Biologist for an informational session for the community to help residents understand coyote behavior and habits. Kevin Clarke will give a presentation on Tuesday, October 30th at 7pm at Mamaroneck Senior Center, 1288 W. Boston Post Road.
Town Supervisor Nancy Seligson says, “Due to recent incidents involving coyotes, the Town felt it was important to address this issue by having an expert on the topic come speak to our residents.”
Town Administrator Stephen Altieri added, “We hope the public will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the coyote and its interaction with both humans and domestic animals. We think this will be a very informative event.”
Kevin Clarke has been a wildlife biologist for the DEC for 12 years and has given dozens of talks on this topic in that time, the most recent was earlier this month in Pleasantville. He will give people time to ask questions following his talk and hopes to leave residents armed with the facts and with a better understanding of the coyote.
