Port Hope Ontario Sightings Nov 2009
(Port Hope, Ontario)
Ram, one of our readers from Port Hope, sent us this report - There have been many Coyotes, not only living in town this year but also in more rural areas in Northumberland.
There have been reported incidents of cats having gone missing (with very graphic explanations) and other issues within the town of Port Hope this year.
The police have been canvassing areas going home to home in mid Port Hope telling locals to keep their animals indoors.
The population either needs to be controlled and/or relocated north of the town as they seem to be posing a very real threat.Yes, this is definitely a problem - and although attacks on humans are rare, the Coyotes are too close to human habitation if they are in and around town. They have obviously lost their fear of people. I hope the authorities can do something about the problem and keep the human population safe, without resorting to culling the animals.
Please keep us updated on the situation in and around Port Hope.
