Coyotes in Sarnia

(Sarnia, Ontario, Canada)
Two of our readers have seen Coyotes in Sarnia, Hellen says ..... I saw a Coyote chasing a rabbit on November 3rd 2012 in Canatra Park in Sarnia, Ontario. It was about 1:00 pm. They ran across a trail I was walking on.
They have been around the south end of the city for a few years now. A lot on people in Sarnia have seen them around the park area.
P.O.C. tells us ..... November 23, 2012 6:00 pm. Coyote sighted in the city, running from the Sarnia Golf Club across Christina Street. It stopped very briefly in the middle of the road to pick up a squirrel (road kill). Then ran off the road & stopped to look at us, with the squirrel hanging from its mouth, as we drove by.
There have been a pair living on the golf course, and Canatara Park to the north, for several years now.
Two years ago, on the same golf course, I saw one resting in the rough. I drove the golf cart over to take a closer look, it got up & trotted into the woods. Thank you both for letting us know about these sightings
