A dog was killed by a coyote attack in LaSalle this week, and that has town officials responding.

“What makes LaSalle unique is the blend of urban and wooded areas which has led to these types of conflicts between wildlife and residents,” the town said in an emailed statement.

The town is urging all residents to be aware of the wildlife in the area and to take all precautions necessary to protect your family, pets and property.

Wild animals, like coyotes, are attracted to places where food is available. A common concern is that residents are leaving food outside which can attract all types of wildlife to your property, including coyotes.

The town strongly suggests that residents refrain from leaving food outside.

Managing wildlife falls onto the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF), and not the town.

Anyone with questions or concerns is encouraged to contact the MNRF at 519-773-4728. Should a resident be in imminent danger of a coyote, they should call 911.
