Press Release

Coyotes and Humans, the Fear of Living Together

Scotsburn, Pictou County, Nova
Scotia, February 8th, 2011

Are you concerned about the possible threats coyotes may pose to humans? Would
you like a discussion with others about the facts and fictions concerning
coyote behaviour? Would you like to experience tracking coyotes living in the


In response to the wildlife hysteria in Nova Scotia directed against
coyotes, an educational workshop on coyotes with a tracking excursion will be
held at Redtail Nature Awareness outdoor centre on the MacBeth Road, Scotsburn,
on Saturday, February 26th, from 9.30 am – 4.30 pm.


Workshop coordinators will be Billy MacDonald, Redtail Nature Awareness,
Scotsburn, and Ethan Huner, Field Naturalist, Algonquin Provincial Park,
Ontario. Billy and Ethan (who spent many summers at Redtail as a camper and
worker), will focus on causes and effects of fear-based relationships that
exist towards predators.


Through discussions, workshop participants will be better able to appreciate
the important role of coyotes in ecosystems. This workshop will also teach
participants to read tracks and signs, who will thus better understand the
behaviour of coyotes and other wildlife and how to relate to them.


The coyote is the great survivor. Amazingly, despite ever increasing human
populations, the coyote continues to thrive, through its adaptability, and is
seemingly indifferent to human attempts to eradicate this species. This animal
has much to teach us, if we are willing to open our hearts and minds. This
workshop is for those who are prepared to take this journey.
