What's going on with the loud howling dogs during the night near the river possibly by the Riverside Cemetary? I just heard them about an hour ago, while the train was going by.
I have heard them a few nights this past week. Does anyone know what and where they are?

There are 2 large packs of coyotes. One on each side of the river. They run it from close to the william street bridge behind the cemetery out past grove street and behind east riverside cemetery.

Thanks for the information. This loud howling seems to be something new in the area. I haven't noticed this in the past. How safe is it?

Trapper's right.
They've been around for a while. I first heard them howling (yipping, really) at least 5 or 6 years ago.
Generally speaking, if you encounter one or more of them, they'll be more scared of you than you'll be of them.

From the yipping and howling sounds that we have heard during the night and the location that we hear them from, sounds like Trapper knows what he is talking about.

They are coyotes I live across the river adjacent from the cemetery . I took my handheld predator calls out and gave a few selective howls? and barks. There are 2 alpha males and roughly 6-8 females. Keep your cats on a short lease. If anyone has property near the cemetery I trap coyote, fox, and bobcat exclusively. I would be more than welcome to remove them this fall season if you have concerns about them.

This is a good read for you Village Resident.

Are Coyotes Dangerous to Humans and Pets?

Although coyote attacks on people have been historically rare, this concern is not unwarranted in the light of more recent events. Such attacks have become more frequent as both coyote and human numbers have increased and merged in space and have been reported in several states (including New York), but most notably in California. Attacks have primarily occurred in suburban areas where coyotes have lost much of their fear of humans due to lack of pursuit and where associated with an easy food source such as garbage and pet food. In some cases, coyotes had been deliberately fed. The best insurance against coyote attacks is to 1) keep all garbage or other foods safely secured, 2) keep pets and their food indoors or safely secured if out doors and 3) harass any coyotes which come into your neighborhood by making loud noises – shouting, starter pistol, alarm devices, etc. If coyotes become persistent or unfazed, lethal removal may be necessary.

Attacks on dogs in rural areas most often occur during the coyote mating and pup birthing period – January through June – as a territorial defense behavior. Coyotes have frequently closely followed and sometimes attacked dogs when being walked by their owners – and sometimes the owners. Coyotes relish cats as food items.

We still hear the coyotes yipping in back of Riverside Cemetery a few times during the day and late evening. They start yipping when they hear the train which seems to be coming by more often these last few months. Someone posted that there are two packs of them. Should this be reported to the DEC? What do the coyotes do when the weather gets colder and it gets into winter?

No you don't need to tell the D.E.C. they know. Unless you are having a problem with them eating pets. The coyotes don't hibernate they will travel and hunt all winter. Their breeding season will be in Jan. Feb. That will also be the coldest time of the year and the most dangerous time for pets to run loose. They make an easy meal for coyotes.

Thank you for the information. I don't have pets, so I don't have to worry about that.
