Coyote sighted!

by Mike Granby
(Dundas / Hamilton, Ontario)

My wife and I saw a Coyote cross right in front of our car.


It was about 7:45 in the evening, and of course it was dark, but there are street lights along the side of the road.

Cootes Drive is a small highway that connects west Hamilton and Dundas, a small valley town also paralleling a old boat canal on one side.

The highway cuts through a wooded marshy area. It connects Dundas Conservation in the west, in a round about way, and heads north to country lands.

I rolled my tinted window down to see him, he looked clean and healthy, not mangy at all. Only one animal crossed the road, which he did at a steady trot and he did not look around before he crossed the road. He then disappeared into the darkness of a grassy field.

Thank you Mike, for your information about the Coyote in your area.

Who would think ....

You wouldn't think there would be Coyotes so close to human habitation, but apparently they are quite bold and don't seem to mind being close to humans.
