NYS Department of Environmental Protection (NYDEC) began field work in 1949 to determine the best method for trapping Coyotes. There has been an increase of human/coyote conflict in the northeast. The suburban dwelling coyote tends to flock most commonly to areas where the deer population is high. Deer population is also on the rise. Since Sept. 2012, there has been 8 reported Coyote sightings in lower Westchester County.
