Coyotes in Burlington Prompt Public Meeting
If you have a dog, you’ve likely seen the rabbit debris, for lack of a better term, and may have even encountered a not-so-friendly coyote (or six) near Newport Park in Burlington.
You’ve got company.
A public meeting about living with coyotes is taking place on Tuesday.
Mayor Rick Goldring and Ward 4 Coun. Jack Dennison will be joined by Burlington MPP Eleanor McMahon and a Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry representative.
They’ll be sharing info and discussing:
- What to do if you encounter a coyote
- How to deter coyotes from approaching backyards and play spaces
- What the community can do to minimize human-coyote conflicts
- Next steps.
The event runs from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. at Mainway Arena (4105 Mainway) in the auditorium.
Coyote sightings or feedings can be reported by phoning 905- 335-3030 or by filing a report.
