For Immediate Release
  
Albany, NY - The City has received messages from concerned citizens over the last several weeks regarding coyote sightings in the Normans Kill area and surrounding neighborhoods. In response to these reports, the Department of General Services has posted signage throughout Capital Hills Golf Course and Normans Kill Farm. Please click here to see an example of the signage that has been posted.

Residents and dog owners should be mindful of coyotes when walking dogs in the neighborhood and letting dogs out in their yards.  Coyotes are wild animals and they can be dangerous. Do not encourage them to approach or feed them. If you bring your pets to Capital Hills they MUST be kept under direct control for your safety and the safety of the animals.   

If you see a coyote exhibiting “bold” behaviors and showing little or no fear of people, contact the local New York State Department of Environmental Conservation at 518-357-2355.
