Please help the Town - Report all coyote sightings!
It is very important to report each and every coyote sighting using the following procedure:
Call Consolidated Dispatch: (843) 743-7200 (available 24/7)
Provide the following data:
1. Date of sighting
2. Time of sighting
3. Location of sighting
4. Quantity of Coyotes
5. Circumstances - Did you HEAR, SEE or INTERACT with the coyote(s)
Interact means having to actively scare away the coyote by activity such as staring it down, yelling/making noise, throwing something at the coyote, etc
The Town does not encourage you to physically engage a coyote.
If at any time you feel in danger, please call 9-1-1 for emergency assistance.
Reporting each and every sighting provides the Town necessary data to track coyote habitats and behavior patterns. This information is critical to the Town's regular review of its coyote management strategies. Thank you for your assistance.
