Coyotes in Birchmount and McNicoll area
by George V
I live by L'Amoreaux Park, and I see these guys walking up and down the walking path weekly, and if I don't see 'em, I can hear them!
Most of the times I see one waking up and down the path, but last winter exactly 10 ft from my back yard I saw as many as 8! That night was magical - they were playing with one another, I remember seeing 2 of em jump on top on what could have been the father, he was rather large, they were play biting one another. I know they are not pack animals, so i assumed they were a younger family, some looked much smaller.
I usually see them after 11pm, but in the summer I've seen them as early as 7pm - 8pm.
Sometimes as early as 6 am I'd see 'em running around in the forest by my house or the field.
Ive been seeing them in my location now for over 5 years, they are here to stay.
I worry that my cat will get attacked, she likes to venture in the forest and field at times, but I've been lucky that no Coyotes were around when she goes out there.
I don't mind seeing 'em, i actually think its amazing and spiritual in a way.
