INCREASING COYOTE PROBLEM IN ONTARIO

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


On Nov 16, 2020. My dog was tragically killed in our backyard while she was outside going for her routine bathroom break. The shock, trauma and PTSD has been indescribable. It wasn’t until I got the “NEXT DOOR” app that I realized this has been an ongoing issue that my fellow neighbors have been worried about for a while, they talk about (and I’ve seen them) taking hockey sticks on their walks, golf clubs, horns, they discuss “hazing methods” for the coyotes, which don’t always work. 
You see if I never got the next door app I would have never known about the coyote issue, that the city has been WELL aware of yet didn’t think to inform the neighborhoods. There have been other pets before mine who were victim, why weren’t we told? Why did I have to find out all about coyotes when it was too late, and on my own? 

Why won’t they do anything to protect our pets? I’m not saying for it to be lethal. Capture and neuter is an option, capture, neuter and put a tracking device, relocate to a remote area far away, in the meantime, at least WARN us, teach the neighborhoods more about hazing them.. send out a letter to each household, just do SOMETHING. 


This isn’t just an issue in my neighborhood, which last week two other dogs were killed in. This is an issue in ALL of Ontario, people’s pets are DYING in their yards, where we think they are safe. Coyotes can jump our fences. Ontario residents are increasingly afraid of walking their dogs, and letting their pets out in their own yards! (they’re being stalked on their walks, I have heard and seen it with my own eyes) 

I think there are they out more now than before for 3 reasons:

1. Developers taking their land and building on it

2. Covid, more people home, more food for them (garbage, pets being out, etc)

3. People have been feeding them, causing them to be less scared of humans

THIS IS AN ONTARIO ISSUE. IT HAS BEEN HAPPENING ALL OVER THE CITY, THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND PROTECT THEIR RESIDENTS AND THEIR WELL-BEINGS. 

The emotional trauma of dealing with this pain is horrifying, I wouldn’t wish this pain on anybody. I have gone through countless therapy sessions, that shouldn’t have to happen!!! 

enough is enough we are all afraid for our pets, they are our FAMILY.
