RYE, NY (WCBS 880) - Football fans now have another use for their air horns.

LISTEN: WCBS 880′s Sean Adams reports

Make the coyotes leap out of their fur and scurry off into the woods. That’s the idea behind giving air horns to some staffers in Rye schools.

Parent Susan Hinson says air horns coupled with education should help keep the children safe.

“We have talked about the coyotes,” HinsonĀ told WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams.

Adams asked, “What have you told them?”

Hinson answered, “To wave their arms, to yell, to not run away from them… back up slowly.”

The deployment of air horns was in the works long before last week’s attacks in Rye Brook, where police shot a rabid, mangy coyote.

In June, two young girls were attacked right in Rye.
