Two dogs killed by coyotes in January in Toronto

Two dogs were snatched this month from backyards located near ravines and killed by coyotes, according to the city. The city sent out a release Friday, warning residents living near ravines, forests, and large parks to expect to see more of the wild animals during winter. Since coyotes mate during January and February, they become more active meaning people are more likely to see them than at other times of the year. “Coyotes generally do not pose a danger to people but can pose a danger for pets,” said the city’s statement. “It is not uncommon for coyotes to injure or kill cats and small dogs.”
