Why me? Why here? Why now?

These may be some of the questions Niagara-on-the-Lake residents are asking themselves after several weeks of coyote confrontations reported around town, particularly in the neighbourhoods around Garrison Village.

The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake will be hosting a coyote information session to try and provide some further understanding regarding coyotes in the municipality, available for the entire public to watch, on April 27 from 6 to 7 p.m.

“Coyote Watch Canada will be joined by community partners, including the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry, Lincoln County Humane Services, and Niagara Regional Police Service, to provide a presentation and answer questions,” town spokesperson Marah Minor said in an email.

Questions can be submitted in advance for the relevant authorities on the subject by emailing communications@notl.com, messaging the town on any of its social media platforms or calling/texting 905-380-0056, Minor said.

Questions can also be submitted during the session via the same methods.

The session can be accessed at livestream.com/notl, the same resource the town uses to stream all of its council and committee meetings.

The session will be available via the same link as a recording after the live stream is finished.
