COYOTE WARNING - U OF A FARM

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
