Prior to this incident, six other coyotes were killed and laid out in easy-to-find areas in three separate cases. The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources launched an investigation following the second case. AM 980 reports that the MNR investigation is "ongoing" and that they have not confirmed if the cases are connected.
It is prudent investigation technique to not make any assumptions prior to have facts or corroborating evidence. But to us, it is quite clear that these cases are linked, and something dark and dangerous is going on. With the cultural disrespect for coyotes and many other wild species that our government has allowed to fester, it’s almost surprising that incidents like this have not occurred before – or more frequently.
We’re asking all of our Ontario supporters to please keep your ears and eyes open, and report any behaviour or information that could be related to these incidents to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources at 1-877-847-7667.
