Be Cautious Around Coyotes
Wed, Jun 24th, 2015
The Police Department reports that coyote sightings are on the rise throughout the Township.
Coyotes will typically run or hide when they spot a human or larger animal. However, female coyotes give birth in the spring and will aggressively defend their pups from perceived threats. If you are walking on a trail or in a park and come upon a coyote, do not be aggressive toward the animal. If a coyote is standing its ground, back away and walk in another direction, then call the Police Department at 610-279-9033.
Although coyotes are usually not aggressive to humans or larger animals, they will attack small domestic pets. Do not feed your pets outside. Coyotes, raccoons and fox are tricksters and are always in search of a quick meal. They will make your deck or shed a home.
Please do not feed wild animals. This only teaches them that humans are a source of food and increases the risk of conflict. Wild animals are part of the beauty and rich heritage of Whitpain. Please exercise respect and use common sense if you should see coyotes or other wild animals.
Discussion On Open Space Initiative Tabled
Wed, Jun 17th, 2015
Discussion on the proposed open space initiative that would preserve the Meadowlands tract was tabled at last night's Board of Supervisors meeting.
The Board is disappointed the proposal could not be discussed again and regrets any inconvenience caused by the necessary tabling of the agreement and associated ordinance. The tabling was due to last minute questions and requests posed by Meadowlands Country Club. The Township remains interested in the proposal, but future public meetings on the agreement, at this point, have not been scheduled.
