Many Coyotes in ravine
(Thornhill, Ontario, Canada)
My name is Carole I live in Thornhill, Ontario.
We have a ravine at the back of our property and every evening around 12:00 pm we hear barking followed by howling and it sounds like there must be a whole pack of Coyotes out there.
They also make a awful screaming sound, which makes me think that they are killing some small animal or it's the small animal thats screaming.
I really wish something could be done to get rid of them because it is a very frightening experience and I don't feel safe in my own back yard.
Wow, that would be an un-nerving experience, having to listen to all that howling.
If it is any consolation, Coyotes typically don't form packs the way Wolves do, they are more likely to be just a pair or small family, and according to Hinterland Who's Who ... "If several coyotes are in the same vicinity, the howling of one triggers that of the others, resulting in an impressive concert. Two coyotes howling in unison can create the illusion of a dozen or more."
