Tenafly / Alpine Chemical Awareness Prevention
The Tenafly Chemical Awareness Prevention (CAP) Website
Please Follow Precautions with Wildlife
Coyotes are now common in this state ~ there are more than
3,000 living in New Jersey and have been sighted in 390 of the state's 566 municipalities. All sightings should be
reported to the Alpine Police Department so that this information can be compiled and provided to the New Jersey Department
of Fish & Wildlife.
According to the New Jersey Division
of Fish & Wildlife, the following additional steps should be followed:
1- Never feed a coyote.
Feeding coyotes puts pets and other residents in the neighborhood at risk.
2- Feeding cats outdoors can attract
coyotes. The coyotes feed on the pet food and also prey on the cats.
3- Put garbage in tightly
closed containers that cannot be tipped over.
4- Remove sources of water, especially in dry weather.
5- Bring pets in at night.
6- Put away bird feeders at night to avoid attracting
rodents and other coyote prey.
7- Pick up fallen fruit and cover compost piles.
should monitor their children, even in familiar surroundings, such as back yards.
9- Install motion-sensitive
lighting around the house.
10- Clear brush and dense weeds from around dwellings to reduce protective cover for coyotes.
If you observe coyotes in the daytime that
show no fear of humans or if a coyote attacks a person, immediately contact your local police
and the Division of Fish and Wildlife at 908-735-8793; outside
of normal business hours call the DEP Hotline at 877-WARN-DEP.
