With coyote on the loose in Radnor Township, police urge caution

RADNOR TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) — A coyote was spotted Tuesday on the Main Line, and authorities are warning people in the area to be extra vigilant over their pets.

Radnor Township police said anyone who happens to see or come across a coyote should give them a call so they can check it out.

They received a call Tuesday afternoon from someone who lives in the area of Abrahams Lane and Church Road, where the coyote was spotted in the caller’s backyard.

Police saw it, as did Animal Control Officer Bill Gallagher.

“It was a coyote, there’s no question about it,” he said. The coyote ran off and hasn’t been seen since. 

Gallagher said people who live near where the animal was spotted should stick close to their pets when outside, but there’s no need to worry about a coyote attacking people.

“They’re probably more afraid of people than people are of them,” Gallagher added. “They definitely don’t want to mix with the people.”
