Coyote Warning (posted 9/11/14)

This past week, Wrentham had two (2) quarantines for dogs that had altercations with coyotes (a pack of 4) over at the Lind farm area heading towards Dowling Landscape and Shire Drive in Norfolk. These coyotes are very aggressive and pulled the dogs into the woods forcing the owners to go in after them.

On one occasion a women was followed for about a half mile by the coyotes. She was obviously very shaken up by the incidence.

Massachusetts Wildlife and Fisheries have been contacted before the situation becomes more serious. The Town is advising residents to avoid walking the paths in this area until further notice.

If you have any questions or can provide any additional sighting reports, please contact Wrentham's Animal Control Officer at (508) 384-2121.
