    Yup, they’re tough to find. We have an old city property nearby that was used maybe 20% for landfill and the rest is just fallow…the kind of property that would be loaded with them 30 years ago, and I’ve never seen a burrow there yet. Lots of coyotes howling at night though….

    Shush-perhaps one of them Nutcakes-dreaming the coyote is a precious animal, which has a place in our ecosystem -will hear you and not like it.
    After all-at least BY them nutbars, it DOES NOT matter, that the coyote is not native to Ontario.
    Who cares-they will defend coyote till the last groundhog /grouse/deer ...etc.

    Like-those animals do not matter.

    Before moving north a few years ago, seeing a ground hog in the south was a rarity. The first few months in the north, I saw more groundhogs along the roads and field edges than I had seen in the last ten years down south. Ground hog roadkill is common place here.

    In the '70's and 80's there was a bounty on coyotes in Simcoe County. I had NEVER seen or even heard of a coyote in those days. There were groundhogs everywhere. The county dropped the bounty on coyotes and the rest is history. Rabbits, groundhogs, grouse...I miss the good old days.

    Just another example of the days we live in-there are animals with rights, and animals without rights.
    Coyotes are overrunning the country side-non native here in Ontario-wiping out many species they can put their mouth on-YET no Government dares to do anything effective against them,due of the fear from Animal "RIGHTS" groups.

    Pathetic.

    It never ceases to amaze me that a very small,but,vocal handful of screaming and foaming-at-the-mouth animal rights whackos can paralyze a government,but,almost 3 million firearm owners can't.

    Boils down to money allocation. money for coyote removal or supporting hospitals. They could raise the hunting fees and create a bounty fund but how would that go over?
    At the moment the government has given free reign no closed season no limit.
    Guess if those that are that concerned with coyote populations would go after them with the same zeal as them animal rights people problem solved.
