I saw a Coyote in Oakville ,Ontario
by Rudy Besser
Rudy, one of our readers from Oakville, sent us this report of a Coyote sighting - On Tuesday 20th April 2010, I was walking my two dogs when I saw a Coyote within ten yards of us. The Coyote crossed the road and looked at us and just kept walking. It continued to walk into the trails and bushes. This animal definitely scared me.
This area is approximately 25-30 years old and I have walked my dogs for years and have never seen one, it was between 11:30 pm and 11:45 pm. The area is fully residential but has many trails. I must admit it was scary because I thought it would attack but it just kept walking, not running. The area is between Nottinghill Gate and the Third Line Road in Oakville.
I guess the Coyotes are starting to come south from the Milton, Ontario, area.
