Aggressive Coyote Killed in Princeton

coyotewinterA resident on Quaker Road called police just after noon today to report that an animal was being aggressive toward people. The caller said the animal was growling at people and appeared disoriented. Police and animal control located the animal, a coyote, in a wooded area just off of Quaker Road. The coyote was aggressive, and was destroyed at the direction of animal control and health officials. The dead coyote was transported to a State of New Jersey health facility for testing to determine what might have been responsible for the animal’s aggressive behavior, police said.

Princeton Animal Control Officer Mark Johnson argued earlier this year that the town should have a coyote culling program. The governing body of Princeton, in consultation with an animal control committee led by Council President Bernie Miller, decided to wait and collect more data before approving such a program.
