We keep hearing coyote stories at MyRye.com. Have you had a brush with Wile E. Coyote around town? Leave a comment below. We heard from Angelo Vassallo of Greenhaven, the Rye neighborhood adjacent to the Rye Marshlands Conservancy. Angelo wrote to MyRye.com:
"Last Monday at 5:30 am I was walking my dog on Brevoort and Greenhaven when out of the bushes a large coyote jumped out. I fell back but grabbed my small dog.
I yelled at it and it didn’t move. I started to walk backwards towards my house and it followed me. Finally I picked up a rock and chased it away. I called the police who indicated that they knew that coyotes were in the Greenhaven area. I now walk my dog with a stick in my hand."
The Jay Heritage Center will host an informational "coyote" meeting with Rye PD Commissioner Connors for area residents tonight, Tuesday, June 29th at 7pm at the Jay Heritage Center/1907 Carriage House at 210 Boston Post Road (698-9275).
