Coyote spotted in Queens
The NYS DEC says that the biggest risk from coyotes is that they carry diseases, including distemper, hepatitis, parvo virus, rabies, mange, and tularemia. They also sometimes eat cats and small dogs. Human attacks are rare, but as with skunks, if they don't seem to be afraid of you, you should be afraid of them.
Rochdale Village is providing security escorts to and from the parking lots to residents who request them.
