In the past month or so, we have received several short reports from our readers who have sighted Coyotes in Southern Ontario.
Here is a synopsis of these reports.Angela from Aurora
says .... We live on the Highlands Golf Course, and saw a Coyote this morning staring through our chain link fence. Our dog was outside and barked for a minute , then just sat down, usually she would run up to the fence and try to play. Marge from Walsingham, Ontario
says .... We heard a pack of about 10, about 30 metres from our back porch Oct 26 2011.
In November, a reader from Port Colbourne
said .... in November 2011, saw a very large Coyote right beside road. I actually thought it may have been a Wolf, because it was so large.Susie Golzlin, from Bradford
says .... We were driving near Gilford, Ontario, around 5:30pm when along the road was a white Coyote trying to cross in front of us. The coyote then ran to a nearby field and seemed to watch the traffic go by.R Humphrey from London
, Ontario, reports .... About 4 pm. on December 31st 2011,our dog started growling and running from window to window. We looked out and saw a Coyote running along the back fence.A reader from Burlington
, reported his sighting from North of highway 5 / Walkers Line .... Was walking a trail and observed a large Coyote about 200 meters in the brush, it was looking at me and then took off, was surprised by the size - very large. Cool to see in person!A reader from London, Ontario
said .... About 8:30 a.m. on January 18, 2012, I took my dog over to the ponds off of Pond View Road. I was at the bottom of the stairs when I saw two Coyotes just down a little ways on the same path as I was on. They casually trotted off in the other direction, but they didn't seem scared, just inconvenienced. I left the area, as my dog is very aggressive while on her lead, and I didn't want to provoke anything. Thanks for all your reports - it seems that Coyotes are alive and well in Southern Ontario!
