RE: UNPROVOKED PREDATORY WOLF/COYOTE ATTACK
Early this morning a residents dog was attacked by a Coyote or Wolf in the Bayshore Park area. Sadly, the dog succumbed to its injuries.
Wild animals generally fear and avoid people and rarely pose a threat to human safety. Take precautions and use common sense in ALL potential large carnivore encounters:
- Stay calm and do not run
- Stand tall and make yourself look larger
- Slowly back away and maintain eye contact
- Keep dogs on a leash
- Always hike/camp in a group and never alone
Please report any sightings to the MBQ Infrastructure Department at (613) 396-3424.
