Mike Cuplowsky, past president of La Marquise Condominium on Marc Chagall Avenue, took these photos of a coyote spotted in the Cote Saint-Luc Snow Dump.
Coyotes, like other wild animals, sometimes come into conflict with humans. Do not approach or feed a coyote. They are usually wary of humans and avoid people whenever possible. However, they are wild animals and should not be approached. People should NOT feed coyotes. Feeding them makes the animals less fearful of humans and habituates them to foods provided by humans. Aggressive behaviour towards people is unusual for coyotes, but people should always exercise caution around wildlife.
If you encounter a coyote never attempt to "tame" the animal. Do not turn your back on or run from it, You can back away from the coyote while remaining calm.
