Provide the following data:
1. Date of sighting
2. Time of sighting
3. Location of sighting
4.  Quantity of Coyotes
5. Circumstances - Did you HEAR, SEE or INTERACT with the coyote(s)

If at any time you feel in danger, please call 9-1-1 for emergency assistance.    

Reporting each and every sighting provides the Town necessary data to track coyote habitats and behavior patterns.  This information is critical to the Town's regular review of its coyote management strategies. Thank you for your assistance.
