From the Wareham Department of Natural Resources:

Thursday evening WDNR responded to the area of Stoney Run in Wareham for a bold coyote. No human or domestic animal contact was made however its aggressive posturing and hunting characteristics were concern for residents.

Upon WDNR’s arrival the coyote was unable to be located. Additional residents reported seeing this coyote frequenting this area recently so we urge residents in proximity to just make yourself aware of the coyote and take some addition precautions especially during morning and evening hours when they are most active.

The coyote is described to be a very healthy looking animal. Food sources are key elements for wildlife hanging around residential areas so be sure trash is secured in closed barrels and small pets are under your immediate control.

If you have any concerns please feel free to contact WDNR at 508-291-3100 x 3180.

The area has been posted with a temporary informational sign offering tips on handling coyotes and co-existing.
