Imagine this- you’re out for a nice walk in the park and then BAM there’s a coyote right next to you.  Scary, right?  Well, this is reality in the Town of Owego Park.

According to Town of Owego Supervisor, Danald Castellucci Jr., there was a report that a coyote or coyotes approached a dog that was being walked in the park and now town officials are reminding dog owners that they need to follow the town’s leash law and keep their dog(s) leashed while walking.

Town officials also say if you run into a coyote, don’t approach the animal. Calmly leave and avoid direct eye contact. You might be tempted to feed animal, but town officials say doing so can cause animals to feel more comfortable with people and that could lead to all sorts of problems.

The Town of Owego wants to make it clear that  they’re addressing this situation and that this public notice is not intended to cause alarm, but to make the public aware of the situation.

In the event of a non-emergency sightings, you’re asked to report it  to the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office at (607) 687-1010 as well as the Town of Owego at 687-0123, ext. 7.
