Toronto residents who live near ravines and forests – typical coyote habitat – can expect an increase in coyote sightings during the winter. Coyotes are active day and night, but prefer to hunt at dusk and dawn.

To help to educate residents about coyotes, Animal Services is hosting an information session on Monday, April 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the East York Civic Centre, Council Chambers.

Guest speakers from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and Coyote Watch Canada will cover the following topics:

  • Coyote behaviour in the urban environment
  • Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act
  • Co-existing with coyotes in Toronto

Residents can access more information via toronto.ca/coyote or by calling 416-338-7297.
