Coyote sightings along popular Guelph trail

The City of Guelph and Guelph Humane Society are reminding trail users to be vigilant following coyote sightings along the Niska Trail in Guelph’s west end. In two separate incidents this month, a coyote has been stalking people and dogs. In the first incident, a coyote attacked a dog while the owner was hiking on the trail. In the second incident, the Ontario Provincial Police reported that a coyote had attempted to attack a hiker walking two dogs. It is not known if the same coyote was involved in both incidents.
