Coyotes in South Jersey? [VIDEO]
This is not an April Fools joke....
It's a reality in Hamilton Township. According to The Press of Atlantic City, Jan Bilicki not only heard the howling, she saw the coyote stroll by her window in the middle of the afternoon this winter.
It only seems like yesterday when animal protection groups were on a mission to save the black bear in South Jersey, could the coyote be next?
I recently spoke with Patty Eigenman, a loyal listener and a resident of Egg Harbor City, who claims that the 'coyote talk' has reached her town too. Many residents may talk about it, but are skeptical if they'll ever actually see one.
Jan Bilick, on the other hand, now walks her dog armed with a big stick. (Press of Atlantic City).
DEP records even show at least one coyote being seen in Atlantic City in the early 1990s and in Wildwood in the late 2000s.
Have YOU ever spotted a Coyote?
Either way, we'll make sure to stay prepared.....
