Information Regarding Coyotes

Posted By Winchester Police on May 15th, 2019

There are coyotes in Winchester. We occasionally have residents call when they see a coyote in their neighborhood or when out and about. This is not unusual.  Residents should be aware that coyotes will view some pets as prey and as a food source. This is normal behavior.  Coyotes are generally nocturnal but seeing them during the daytime does not mean that they are sick or will become aggressive. Residents should NOT feed coyotes.  Normally a coyote will be scared away by the presence of a human.  This is also normal behavior. Coyote attacks on humans are very rare.  Coyotes can contract and carry rabies. If a resident observes an unhealthy looking coyote or a coyote acting strangely or aggressively, they should stay away and contact the police immediately.
