I live in Bass Lake just 5 minutes from Orillia, Ontario. Our backyard backs onto bush.
The Coyote are a regular sight as my husband and I walk our dogs through the bush. There is an open field at the top of the ravine and on at least two occasions we have stumbled on them while they appear to nap in the field. As soon as they hear us they run away.
My husband heard a dog barking and a lady screaming the other day. It seems she likely came across them as well. I don't think her dog was harmed, but our neighbour down the road has lost two cats this year.
We hear them at dusk howling.
