Coyotes in Quinton Heights

First it was bears and now home-owners in Quinton Heights are being plagued with coyotes. A caller to our 648-3000 news-line tells us they have been seen and heard howling through the neighbourhood in recent days. Gary Moore is a regional biologist with the Department of Natural Resources and tells CHSJ News, it's not unusual that the animals are on the move like they are every fall.

Moore says coyotes have a reputation of being afraid of people but it's good practice to not leave garbage lying around and keep an eye on your pets.
