Barnard’s Director of Public Safety Dianna Pennetti informed the community this morning that Frightening Animals were spotted on Columbia’s campus this morning.

They weren’t hawks.  They were coyotes.  In front of Lewisohn.  Who says we’re too urban?

Full email after the jump.

Dear All,
Columbia Public Safety reports the possible presence of coyote’s on the Morningside Campus.
Three animals identified as coyotes were observed in front of Lewisohn Hall this morning, 911 was contacted and NYPD responded. NYPD spotted one of the
animals and confirmed it was a coyote. The one coyote that was seen by NYPD and CUPS went behind the CEPSR build and it is believed exited the campus.
An additional sighting by CU facilities was called in approximately 10:00 AM this morning but was not confirmed. All members of the community are advised not to approach these animals.

If there are any sightings, please call Columbia Public Safety immediately at 212-854-5555 or Barnard Public Safety at 212-854-3362.

Thank You,
Dianna M. Pennetti
Director of Public Safety
