My office received two calls this week, from residents living on Solva Avenue, regarding a coyote sighting. We appreciate this information being brought to our attention and immediately shared this with the NCC and City By Law.
Coyotes are usually wary and fearful of humans. But should you encounter a coyote, please follow these important instructions:
- Remain calm and slowly back away from the coyote
- Do not turn your back and run
- Stand tall, wave your hands, and make plenty of loud noises
Report a coyote sighting in your neighbourhood
Please note the City utilizes this data to track coyote movements and the creation of a service request does not mean a By-law Enforcement Officer will be dispatched to attend.
If a coyote is posing an immediate threat or danger to the public, call 9-1-1 immediately.
Please refer to the Coyotes page for more information.
