Rural Kingston and Not alone...
by R Penrose
(Stone Mills Township, Ontario, Canada )
We live on a country road 20 minutes northwest of Kingston, in Stone Mills Township, on 4 acres of land with neighbouring homes about 70 metres away on either side of us.
About 8:30 am on Feb. 2nd, 2020 in full daylight, a coyote strolled between our home and the neighbours heading from the brush at the back of the property to the road out front, stopping now and then to listen.
Unbeknownst to us, at the same time another one was to the west of our neighbours house and the neighbour shot it.
About 5 minutes later we spotted another one in the back field, also headed towards the homes - or passing through to the road, but it startled and returned to the brush.
Personally I'm not a fan of killing any wildlife, but there is a bounty on Coyotes in our Township for a reason, and they are a hazard to pets and small farm animals.
