Coyotes make it to the BBC

Montreal’s coyote problem has made it to the BBC’s News From Elsewhere section, with a good summary of the situation, but which probably makes us sound much more Wild West than we really are.

The city’s stated intention to kill coyotes is being criticized. The animal shown in the Journal piece is much bigger and healthier-looking than the ones in the BBC article.

I’ve seen nothing yet about whether this species brings a risk of rabies.
