New London Mayor Michael Pasero says that the city will try to obtain the special permit needed to take care of a nuisance coyote in the city’s south end IF it becomes aggressive toward humans. According to a DEEP spokesman, if the animal is deemed aggressive it will be trapped and killed. Under state regulations, the coyote cannot be relocated. The mayor encouraged residents to not feed wild animals and take other precautions. A wildlife ecologist suggests “hazing”, yelling, waving arms, using noisemakers,spraying water and throwing sticks and rocks to scare them off.
