"The last reports of barn owls confirmed (in this region) were 20 years ago or more," Game Commission biologist Roger Coup said.
...
Coup said the Franklin office has had a few reports of dead barn owls but that they turned out to be other kinds of owls, usually horned or barred. He said that if people find a dead bird and think it's a barn owl or want to know what it is, they can call the Northwest Region Office at (814) 432-3188.

Roger Coup, a biologist with the Game Commission's Northwest Office in Franklin, Venango County, also confirmed that coyotes are expanding their range into more developed suburban areas.
"They can have their dens under a brush pile or someone's front porch.They are very adaptable," Mr. Coup said.
Meet the coyote
...
"They're becoming a common phenomenon in suburban areas because there's food there," Mr. Coup said.
A wild coyote eats small mammals such as mice, meadow voles or rabbits, and munches occasionally on berries or bird eggs.Not picky eaters, coyotes also enjoy a meal of carrion and, in suburban areas, where road kill is appearing with greater frequency, the coyote will lick his chops over a dead deer served on a concrete platter of roadway.
"I can't stress enough how opportunistic a coyote is.They'll take advantage of any available food source.Because suburban areas have a high number of deer and a concurrent high number of road kill, it makes sense that the coyote will see that as a food opportunity," Mr. Coup said.
Coyotes also like cats.
"They're very fond of cats.Lost cats or small dogs on the loose, coyotes have been known to readily take them," Mr. Coup said.They're even lured by pet food, table scraps and garbage.
"They're just not averse to being near people.They have adapted well," he said.
They are not to be feared, he said, though a healthy avoidance of all wildlife is always advised.He said coyotes are not a ready carrier of rabies and their instinct is to avoid people "to the point that you won't even know that they're there.

"There are certain species that are more likely to get the disease," Wildlife Management Supervisor Roger Coup of the Pennsylvania Game Commission said.Those are called vector species.
"Raccoons, skunks and foxes, are probably the top three on the list," he said."Groundhogs.And of course bats are on the list.
But, "any mammal is capable of getting the disease," Coup said.
In terms of calls about rabies, this summer has been an unusually busy one for the commission.
Coup said many of the calls have been from people who have found baby animals in their yards."We had a tremendous number of calls this year," he said."Mostly, people are finding baby raccoons in their yards."
When the mother doesn't return, people sometimes try to help.That often involves picking the babies up and moving them.
But people can't do much to help baby animals and frequently do more harm than good, Coup said.
"You're not doing wildlife any good by picking it up and trying to help," Coup said."Let nature take its course."
And there are dangers for people who handle wildlife - whether the animal is newborn or full-grown.
"They end up getting bitten or scratched," Coup said of many people who handle wild creatures.
...
Aggression," Coup said."The animal could just look extremely ill."
But there aren't always familiar clues, or any at all.
"Foaming at the mouth doesn't occur all the time," Coup said."Often, you wouldn't see any symptoms."
So, Coup recommends a respectful caution.
"You can observe wildlife at a distance," he said."But respect them, respect their space."
"If you see a wild animal, leave it alone," Coup said.
The animals will typically do the same for people, he said.
If they don't, or for any other reason people and wild animals come in close contact, Coup suggests calling experts.
"Contact the game commission or local authorities to look into it," he said.
