Public Services working to relocate coyotes
The city of Leduc is working together with a wildlife control contractor after a number of coyote sightings were reported lately.
Over the past few weeks, the city's Public Services have gotten calls about coyote sightings around Telford Lake, along with track which indicates they've been present in the K-9 Off-leash Dog Park.
The steps to control the coyotes include hazing along multiway and heavy use areas in the mornings and evenings.
The process doesn't injure but instead re-establishes the coyotes fear of human territory with service dogs and non-fatal marker guns.
Public Services will also be humanely trapping and relocating any coyotes they may find.
They expect this will take up to 2 weeks before they're all relocated and in the meantime, you're encouraged to use caution if you frequent the parks around the city and if you see a coyote report it to Public Services at 780-980-7133. (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
