    There is a big pack of coyotes that live in the woods behind Corpus Christi HS between Appleby Line and Burloak. They use the flood control areas to roam deep into the nearby neighbourhoods. Great opportunity for a safe and effective controlled hunt and cull. Unfortunately City hall would rather blame you for feeding the coyotes than reduce the threat.

    Perfect time for a winter cull of these aggressive invasive species. I call upon the City of Burlington to allow a one week controlled shot gun coyote hunt by vetted and certified Burlington coyote hunters in early February. The City should also buy all harvested coyote pelts at a price of no less than $150 / each and use police to protect the perimeter of designated coyote hunting areas from general public access during the said controlled hunt. Do you want Public Safety or politically correct excuses that leaves Burlingtonians vulnerable to harm from these free ranging predators?

    They are very active in the Shoreacres Creek Spruce Avenue Culvert area. The city has done nothing.

    People should contact Lisa Kearns to get a whistle…according to her, they will scare off any coyotes in area.

    We were down at Paletta Mansion enjoying an afternoon walk a few days ago, when two large coyotes ran across the path in front of us. They are certainly still in the neighbourhood.
