Coyotes are adaptable and have expanded their range to urban and suburban areas, including parts of New Jersey. Here are some key points about coyotes in the state:

  1. Distribution: Coyotes are found throughout New Jersey, and their presence has been documented in both rural and suburban areas. They are highly adaptable and can thrive in various habitats.
  2. Urban and Suburban Presence: Coyotes have been observed in urban and suburban environments, sometimes venturing into neighborhoods in search of food. They are known to adapt to human-dominated landscapes.
  3. Behavior: Coyotes are generally shy and elusive. They are most active during dawn and dusk, but urban coyotes may also be active during nighttime. They are opportunistic feeders, consuming a varied diet that includes small mammals, birds, fruits, and insects.
  4. Interaction with Pets: While coyotes typically avoid confrontations with humans, there have been instances of interactions with pets. Small pets, such as cats and small dogs, may be vulnerable, and pet owners are advised to take precautions, such as keeping pets on leashes and avoiding leaving pet food outdoors.
  5. Precautions for Residents: To minimize potential conflicts with coyotes, residents are advised to secure garbage cans, remove food sources, and not intentionally feed wildlife. It’s also recommended to supervise pets, especially during times when coyotes are most active.
  6. Urban Coyote Research: Some areas in New Jersey, like Bergen County, have been the subject of research on urban coyotes. Researchers study their behavior, diet, and interactions with the urban environment to better understand and manage their presence.
  7. Management and Education: Wildlife agencies and organizations in New Jersey provide information and resources to educate residents about coexisting with coyotes. Understanding their behavior and taking preventative measures can help reduce potential conflicts.

It’s essential to note that wildlife information can change, and new developments may have occurred since my last update in January 2022. If you are seeking the most current information on coyotes in New Jersey, I recommend checking with local wildlife agencies, such as the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, or other relevant authorities for the latest updates and guidelines.

  1. Don’t try to outrun a coyote, top speed for running is 43mph.

  2. Don’t build a field near/where coyotes roam.

    1. There are coyotes in the Saddle River Park and Grove Park as well.

  3. Nothing new

  4. Hello, your picture is of a wolf! don’t think there are many of those on these parts.

  5. So what is the next piece of land that the village would like to buy? I’m sure they have something up their sleeve.
    All they ever going to acquire the old repair shop on Franklin Avenue. That’s been going on for 10 years at least.
