Got coyotes? Researchers want to photograph them on residential properties

CBC reported on a study by UBC and Stanley Park Ecology Society that aims to capture coyotes in urban settings on camera.

“[Coyotes are] used to living in an environment….where they are good at hiding and making their presence not really known,” said Dr. Kristen Walker, a UBC animal welfare biologist. UBC student Brynn McLellan will be completing her undergraduate thesis on this project.

    This may be out of the bounds of your study, but for your interest, there is a pack of coyotes living in urban Maple Ridge.

    Their habitat seems to be in the bushes north of Lougheed Highway between 240 St and Kanaka Road (east end of Haney Bypass).

    They can frequently be heard howling as a pack at various times during the day.
