Patrons of one Tioga County park are being urged to exercise caution following reports of coyotes being sighted.

The incidents have been reported recently at the Campville Commons Park on Route 17C.

Authorities say there has apparently been no direct contact between people, pets and the wild canines.

The coyotes seem particularly interested in people walking their domestic dogs.

People are advised to avoid eye contact with a coyote and to calmly leave the area.

Encounters with coyotes should be immediately reported to authorities.
