(Port Colborne, Ontario)
I've lived in Southern Ontario most of my 48 years.
Grew up on the Welland canal from St. Kitts to Port Colborne.
I've always had a dog and walked them winter and summer, day and night, and I've heard and seen lots of coyotes heard them last night too
Never bothered me - it's Nature for goodness sake.
If you put food out for them (small dogs etc) they'll come and eat, USE YOUR HEADS!
