EDISON – Jeff Repace isn’t sure what he’ll find in his yard when he gets home after a neighbor reported a strange animal, possibly a coyote or fox, climbed the fence into his yard Friday morning.

He’s especially concerned because he has two small dogs that’s he’s afraid to let out because wild animals can be quick to attack.

On Friday morning Repace said his partner received a text from their neighbor who spotted the animal in their Clara Barton section yard. 

“It looks like a coyote to me,” Repace said of the photo his neighbor sent. “It looks like a coyote, am I mistaken?”

This animal, believed to be a coyote or possibly a fox, was spotted Friday morning in the yard of a home in the Clara Baron section of Edison.

Repace said some believe the animal may be a fox.

Repace said the sighting was alarming, especially since it was during the day.

“What the heck is it doing in my yard,” he said. “I wouldn’t expect that.” 

Repace said he reached out to Edison Animal Control because he was concerned it could be rabid and dangerous, especially to pets and children in the neighborhood. He was told coyotes are wild animals, but otherwise didn’t seem too interested.
