The report comes on the heels of yesterday’s reported spotting of a coyote in Palisades Park near the Ridgefield border.
Today’s incident occurred around 10:30 a.m., after a Linden Avenue resident told police he was doing yardwork when he found the 30- to 40-pound coyote lying behind his shed in a fenced-in backyard.
