Coyote Spotted in Whitby Shores Ontario

Coyote in Whitby Shores Ontario 1So I’m doing this public service for all of my neighbors with outdoor cats, small dogs and young children.

I spotted and snapped a few pictures of a coyote in the region. I had been noticing signs for a while in the form of rabbit kills and scat with lots of fur in it, but this is the solid evidence that there is a coyote operating near our neighborhood.

I want to make it obvious that I have no interest in killing, relocating, or interfering with this animal in any way. I believe that it has just as much right to exist around here as we do. I just want to make sure that everyone is keeping their small dogs close while walking along the waterfront trail and outdoor cat owners know where their beloved friend has gone to.

So be aware of your surroundings and you will be fine, have a great day neighbor.

Coyote in Whitby Shores Ontario 2


Yesterday Oct 19th 2017, I found two dead animals near where I think the den is. They were completely intact except for the possum stomach that was slit open. The rabbit was stiff and didn’t have a mark on it.

Today Oct 20th 2017, The corpses were gone and there was rustling in the bushes where I believe the den is.


This leads me to believe that someone poisoned the coyote.

It did nothing wrong and you killed it. Why? Fear? You disgust me.
