Wildlife sightings such as coyote or bears in Craven County

Wildlife sightings in Craven County aren’t anything new, especially during the fall or winter when they are on the hunt for a food source, experts say.

But when it is appropriate to report a wildlife sighting such as a coyote, black bear, deer or fox?

Here is when you should report wildlife and how to stay safe around these animals, according to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Every wildlife sighting doesn’t need to be reported

A recent Facebook post on the Trent Woods Police Department page indicated coyotes may be in the area.

“We’ve had a couple of sightings,” said Chief Tony Lee of Trent Woods Police Department. “This is not something we see all the time. We do know there are probably a few coyotes around town according to what people have told us.”
