Aug 28, 2011 Coyotes


Not that long ago, coyotes were rarely seen in the Maritimes. Farmers might have considered them a nuisance, when they killed a lamb or calf. But most people never gave them a thought.

That all changed with the death of singer/songwriter Taylor Mitchell in 2009. Coyotes attacked her on a trail in Cape Breton. In Nova Scotia coyotes are now seen as a deadly enemy and a public danger.
