Coyote on the prowl

Coyote sightings raise safety concerns and questions over deer cull

There have been several sightings of a coyote on several patios, including ours, and around yards in our gated community lately, as well as a letter in the paper from a woman who saw five crossing the street near Zellers recently.

Not surprisingly, the deer in the south of Penticton have disappeared.

So, Mother Nature has solved the deer problem for you, Mr. Pearce.

Except that now we have real predators to deal with, capable of killing pets, as well as humans.

I think, Mr. Pearce, perhaps you should get your posse together and rid this city of this new threat, and there are likely few regulations regarding the rounding up of the coyotes.
