Third coyote killed in seven attacks on humans in Burlington, Ontario.
BURLINGTON, Iowa – The city of Burlington, Ont., says it has eliminated the third coyote responsible for seven unprovoked attacks on humans since late August.
In a news release, the City of Burlington says the coyotes were identified and disposed of Tuesday morning based on descriptions provided by residents who were attacked.
The pack of three coyotes, two of which were killed on Monday, are believed to be responsible for seven human injuries in recent weeks in south-central Burlington.
Marianne Meed Ward, the mayor of Burlington, said in a tweet that the immediate threat to the public from this family of coyotes has been eliminated.
Ward asks community members to report any coyote sightings and asks them to avoid intentionally or unintentionally feeding wildlife.
The city says its personnel continue to be on high alert, patrolling the city to gather information and searching for food sources.
