There have been some recent reports of coyotes roaming streets in town. If you spot a coyote within town limits please call or text Kelly, Pest Control Officer, at 306-552-9506.
Should you encounter a coyote follow these safety tips:
- Do not run or turn your back on the coyote.
- Make noise. Yell, clap hands, blow a whistle and try to make yourself look larger.
- Do not allow a coyote to get in between you and your pet or child—keep children close to you.
- Keep pets under control to avoid creating additional stress for the animal.
As always it is best to try to avoid a close encounter in the first place. Remove attractants such as pet food left outside, fallen fruit, dirty BBQ grills and unsecured trash or compost. Always be aware of your surroundings.
