Help with Coyotes
by Barbara Annis
(Hillsburgh, Ontario, Ontario)
We live in Hillsburgh, Ontario - and spotted a Coyote den on our property, we saw four Coyotes.
We have lost our cats, chickens and our neighbours have recently lost a total of 12 domestic cats, chickens, and a small dog (that we know of).
This is an impossible situation, and we cannot seem to get Animal Control help us, they are not even calling us back.
They do not seem shy creatures, we have seen them cross our paddock (in front of our horses) in the afternoon.
Can someone help?Much as I hate to suggest this, you may have to find someone who will shoot the Coyotes for you - they are getting very bold and won't go away until they have eaten all your pets and small livestock. See if any of your neighbours know of a hunter who will help you.
