By rlsmetro on

Authorities in Newark received several reports of multiple coyote sightings in the city's North Ward overnight.

Newark Police says the reports were called into headquarters from residents in the vicinity of Lake and Grafton Avenue just before 2 a.m.

Police have not confirmed if the animals were indeed coyotes or residents had mistaken them for stray dogs.

According to officials, if approached by the coyotes, residents should not feed the animals; only observe and appreciate them from a distance.

Protect your pets, and make yourself seem bigger by waving your arms and making loud noises. Contact police and animal control immediately if you see the animals.
