Coy­ote sight­ings

Seaway News - - AUTO TALK -

The Corn­wall Com­mu­nity Po­lice Ser­vice would like to ad­vise the cit­i­zens of Corn­wall re­gard­ing re­cent sight­ings of coy­otes within the city lim­its. The ser­vice is concerned about your per­sonal safety and that of your chil­dren and fam­ily pets.

Coy­otes are gen­er­ally not con­sid­ered to be a threat to hu­mans. Res­i­dents are re­minded that all wild an­i­mals are un­pre­dictable by na­ture and it is strongly ad­vised to ex­er­cise cau­tion and good judge­ment when en­coun­ter­ing any wildlife. We are re­mind­ing res­i­dents to not ap­proach or feed coy­otes and to ed­u­cate chil­dren to not ha­rass any wild an­i­mals or un­fa­mil­iar do­mes­tic pets. Res­i­dents are fur­ther re­minded that al­low­ing pets to roam at large in­creases their risk of in­jury. Prop­erly stored and main­tained garbage con­tain­ers will help pre­vent coy­otes from be­com­ing a nui­sance as well.

If you en­counter a coy­ote and there is a pub­lic safety con­cern, please con­tact the ser­vice by di­al­ing (613) 932-2110.
