We’ve been warning that coyotes have been a problem in Belleville’s east end for some time now, and there’s good reason for that.

On Tuesday of last week, Sherri Davis was watching her 6 year old son Dante play in the Stanley Parkette off of Farley Avenue, when she saw what she thought was a sheperd/husky cross strolling through.

Her son approached the animal and it growled at him, and when he turned away to go back to Mom, the coyote attacked.

Dogs have been attacked and cats have gone missing. A few residents of Eamer’s Corners are worried a child will be the next victim of coyotes that appear to have made themselves at home in the neighbourhood.

“I’ve been here for 25 years,” said Marie Dickenson, who lives on Patrick Street. “I’ve never see this.”

She said her chihuahua was ambushed by two coyotes behind her house last Monday, and was saved only by her husband’s quick intervention.

“I don’t even go in my backyard anymore,” she said.

She’s not the only one who has spotted the wild canines in the area; several have reported sightings over the last couple of weeks, including one resident who claimed to have surprised one sleeping behind his shed.

Lisa Ferguson, a Ross Street resident, said two have made appearances around her home, leaving her hesitant to send her dog or kids outside alone.

“They can’t even play in the backyard because I’m too afraid,” she said.
