I wonder if this "astadt" commentator here has ever seen a grown-up coyote at close range. I have, and it had a nasty look. Recently I talked to a man who told me that here in the Mt.Pleasant area one night he was cornered with his back to a house wall by 2 coyotes in pack. They started to crouch, as if preparing to jump forward, when a passer-by came by and he scared the coyotes away by shouting at them. Coyotes are known to sometimes catch and eat cats - in the past 6 years I have seen a dozen postings in the street of Mt. Pleasant by cat owners who were looking for their lost cats. Yesterday in a news article in the "24 hr" paper there was an article by the Parks people of Stanley Park telling us that new young coyotes are going to come out into this city, looking for den places for their new litters. The Parks people tell us to "live with them," with these "animal police" squads, who will be prowling and hunting in packs of 2. And they advise us to not leave any food outside, to force the coyotes to hunt for their own "natural food," i.e. rats and squirrels. But at the same time the Parks people tell us to keep our cats inside - why? What the Parks people tell us means that the city critters, including the alley cats I feed with the leftovers of my own cat, should be starved and killed by the coyotes, these "animal police" that are growing to prowl our streets in greater numbers in the near future. At the same time that the Parks Board promotes the coyotes, last year they destroyed the eggs of the swans in Stanley Park, because those swans were "not originally Canadian." The Harper Conservatives started to attack the most vulnerable and the immigrant refugees, and now this same thing seems to be started against the most vulnerable, the "critters." In the past 1-2 years I have seen the Police coming out with dogs to the Mt. Pleasant to chase away coyotes, because people called the Police, because they were concerned for their own their dogs' safety for frequent sightings of coyotes. About 2-3 months ago at dawn I saw myself a coyote being chased by 2 police dogs in hot pursuit on the sidewalk at 8th/Guelph beside the school. 2 days later the same coyote was back, prowling in the park there. I suggest you tell the Parks people to remove the coyotes from this city, and to relocate them to wooded wild areas. Do we want a predatory "animal police" prowling our streets, to "remove" the "homeless" critters (and maybe to eat our cats outside)?
