Groups call on Experimental Farm to educate about coyotes, not relocate

Two environmental groups are calling on Agriculture Canada to educate, not relocate, when it comes to coyotes making their homes on the experimental farm.

Donna DuBreuil of the Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre said the organization put out a news release with the Animal Protection Party of Canada when it received word that Agriculture Canada had hired professionals to capture and relocate the animals.

“It’s totally impractical. You can’t relocate wildlife when there’s an attraction there,” said DuBreuil. “There’s probably a very healthy rodent population there, with mice and voles and so on, which is part of the coyote’s diet.”
