Large Coyote in Brampton

by DW
(Brampton, Ontario, Canada)

My house backs onto a ravine that is part of the Peel Village golf course. I have a small dog that likes to go out quite often.


We have seen Coyotes before, but this one was very large. It almost seemed to be waiting for me to let my dog out.

It was gray in colour and probably about 50-60 pounds.

I have read that Wolves and Coyotes are breeding. This is perhaps a hybrid? I grabbed a hockey stick and chased him out of the yard.

I will be very cautious from now on late at night.

It is wise to be cautious, David, and yes, the animal possibly was waiting for you to let your pet out - it is good that you are taking good care, and keeping an eye on your dog!
