The Suburban Burlington Coyote
by Bob Bryden
(Burlington, Ontario, Canada)
I saw a Coyote at the corner of Upper Middle and Augustine in Burlington, Ontario while driving home from work the other night around 11:30 p.m.
It's not a romantic 'notion' to say that when you meet a WILD animal 'you'll just KNOW'.
This creature was moving rapidly but stealthily with eyes and head darting. I think it's the ears that gave it away as not being a dog and the sleekness and colouring as not being a Wolf
There are some wooded patches and ravines in the area where I saw him.
We also had some kind of encounter a few months back while filming a scene for a movie, after midnight in a fairly secluded wooded spot.
We heard squealing type sounds at first coming from the ravine followed by a chorus of really creepy growls.
I assume there were pups nearby and the adults were getting protective.
We left the area pretty fast as the darkness was formidable.Thanks, Bob, for sharing this story of your Coyote encounter with us@
