In response to inquiries about the increased presence of coyotes within the County of Oxford, an information package has been developed for all residents. Although the main focus is towards rural properties, there are also some tips for urban homeowners and how to ensure that your property is not attracting this type of wildlife.
This package includes valuable information on behavioural patterns of coyotes and how to protect livestock against them. Also included is local contact information for two organizations, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters
and the Ontario Fur Managers Federation
. Both of these groups can be very helpful for property owners that will allow hunting and/or trapping on their land. This document is available from the following link and from the Township Office
