Report A Sighting

Coyote Sightings

NBCS logo buttonThe Narragansett Bay Coyote Study has been compiling and mapping Coyote Reports and Sightings. These sightings help identify potential trouble spots for human-coyote interactions. This map can be used to locate areas that might have food attractants for coyotes.

If your neighborhood is experiencing a lot of coyote traffic, you may want to ask yourself:

  • Are they just crossing through to a farm or forest or are they hanging around?
  • If they are hanging around, what is attracting them to the area?
  • Are people feeding or leaving pets—or pet food—outside?
  • Are people feeding feral cats (the cat food is a big attraction; the cats are too)?
  • Is there compost with food items or unsecured garbage in the area?
  • Can I help educate my neighbors about how to avoid attracting coyotes?
