NEW CASTLE, N. Y. -- Recent coyote attacks have authorities in the Random Farms area of Chappaqua taking the unprecedented move of ordering traps while residents debate whether it's the right step to take, according to lohud.com.

The Random Farms Homeowners Association and the Katonah Management Group, which manages the development, have hired the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture to set and monitor coyote traps. It follows two recent attacks by coyotes on small dogs last month, one of which resulted in the dog's death, lohud.com says.

Meanwhile, residents have spoken out against the traps, saying people can take precautions in the spring when coyotes are most active. New Castle police report nearly a dozen coyote sightings since May 1, lohud.com reports.
