Coyotes in Aurora
The morning of April 11th, 2012, I was driving down McClellan Drive (Bathurst & Henderson).
A block in front of me, a Coyote
ran right across the road and disappeared down a side street. I was shocked! I knew there had been sightings, but to see it up close at 7:00 a.m when it was bright, was surprising.
Kids are on their way to school or waiting at bus stops, joggers are out for their morning run and people are walking their dogs. This was scary.
At the time, I was wondering if it was a fox, but when I looked at pictures on the Internet, it confirmed my fear. The greyish animal with pointy ears was indeed a coyote! Residents be alert!
There are two schools in the neighborhood and playgrounds close by. And of course our beloved pets may be out in the back yard.
I wonder where the Coyote ended up - it was headed in the opposite direction of the forested area off of Henderson Road. I just can't shake visions of children out at that time walking to school.
If I was walking and encountered one, I wouldn't know what to do!
