On September 17 at 8:00 PM, an individual was walking their large dog in the middle of the West 240 (U of A farm on 62 ave). Two large coyotes charged them from behind - they came running fast from across the field. One was very aggressive baring his teeth - he repeatedly tried to bite the dog's butt. After a great deal of screaming, shouting and chasing the coyotes reluctantly backed off. Another dog walker came running to help scare them away.
The City has sent out park rangers to investigate the area. If you witnessed any recent aggressive coyote behaviour please report it to the City of Edmonton - dial 311
Lendrum is looking for a resident to participate on the security task force and represent our concerns. The first meeting is this Friday, Sept 21 at 9:30 AM at the Pleasantview Community league.
Please contact Laura at email@example.com for further information or if you are interested in joining the task force (even if you can’t attend the first meeting).
As some of you may have noticed, crime has been on the rise in Lendrum and the surrounding communities. Pleasantview, with support from their community league, has created a Task Force on Crime and Crime Prevention to determine how best to address this issue. The task force members number about 12, and include residents from various sections of Pleasantview. They have also made contact with the adjacent communities of Malmo, Lendrum, Allendale, Parkallen, and Belgravia (who are experiencing similar problems).
They have met with the Community Safety Liaison of the Edmonton Empowerment Network, Councillor Walters, and others, and the group will soon be meeting with REACH, Edmonton’s Council for Safe Communities, which has offered to provide us resources and assistance for our endeavours. We plan to address prevention, increased security, improvement (in the navigation and response) of the EPS Non-Emergency Reporting Line, increased EPS presence and response, and greater EPS vigilance, and have already begun our efforts.
