What You Should Know if You See or Encounter a Coyote PDF Print E-mail

coyoteTuesday, May 12, 2015

A number of coyote sightings have been reported in this part of the state. The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife provides important information about avoiding conflict situations with coyotes.

Coyotes play an important role in the ecosystem, helping to keep rodent populations under control. They are by nature wary of humans. However, coyote behavior changes if given access to human food and garbage. They lose caution and fear. They may cause property damage and threaten human safety, requiring euthanasia. Relocating a problem coyote is not an option because it only moves the problem to someone else's neighborhood.

Pet Spotlight: Biggie PDF Print E-mail
Biggie the Chihuahua mixBiggie is looking for his forever family. He is a Chihuahua mix and is two years old. He has been at the shelter for about two weeks after his owner turned him in. He is a very affectionate little guy but can be shy at first so it is best to let him come to you the first time you meet.

Biggie loves to walk or he is happy to hang out and sit on your lap and to have his back scratched. He would love his very own special person to hang out with and to make him part of the family. His ideal family would be with children a little older so as not to startle him. If you already have another little dog, that may work too however we would ask to set up a time to meet so everyone can make sure that they will be friends! Please come by to meet Biggie at the Montclair Township Animal Shelter at 77 North Willow Street during our new, extended visiting hours:

Monday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Tuesday -- 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Wednesday -- 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Thursday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Friday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Saturday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Sunday -- 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
