Still good of her to say something to others who were on their way for a hike. That's it, that's all.

There were a pack of coyotes in the Mill Creek area at the base of Dilworth mountain that we were warned about by our neighbour and we were definitely appreciative. The reason being is they had learned how to distract the owner by sitting on the trail in front of you while other coyotes snuck up from behind and nabbed your dog. Sure enough after being warned a coyote parked itself on the trail ahead and we turned around to see the others. They're a cagey bunch and not afraid of humans if it means a meal for the pack. Never hurts to know when you have a small dog if coyotes are around.

People shouldn't need to be warned about coyotes.
They're everywhere.
I've seen plenty of coyotes at night in downtown kelowna.
When I read of someone seeing one in an area and getting into a fit over it and warning the whole planet about it, it makes me laugh. There's not one in that area. There's dozens. Or hundreds.
Lots of people have a coyote den on their property and they'll never know it.

Who's getting into a fit over seeing a coyote? Even the title of this thread shows little understanding of what actually occurred. I'd rather neighbours speak up when they see a predator - there's nothing wussy or wimpy about a friendly heads up. I already spoke of someone knowing about a coyote den on their property and not doing anything about it until it was too late.

Here's what's next - not squirrels but bears:

The bears are back.

There are more reports of bruins being spotted in urban areas and wildlife officials say there are things people can do to minimize conflict with bears.

Chris Doyle, deputy chief conservation officer, said bears are emerging from their winter dens; they are hungry and will be looking for food sources.

“It's super important for people to ensure there's no non-natural foods for bears to find,” said Doyle. “The most effective way to reduce human-wildlife conflict interaction is to secure attractants such as garbage, bird feeders and fruit.”

Some 60 per cent of the calls to the COS regarding black bears, when an attractant was noted, was garbage for the period of 2014-2017.

The best thing is to remove food sources, but for things like fruit trees, chickens and attractants that can't be removed, Doyle said electric fencing is an effecting method of keeping bears at bay.

More information on how to reduce human-wildlife conflict can be found online.

The higher-than-normal snowpack may also impact bear behaviour.

Doyle said the snow may cause some bears to stay in their dens longer.

“What also might happen is when the bears do emerge will be searching out whatever food they can find so that may drive them to residential areas if all the natural food is covered in snow,” said Doyle.

According to Wild Safe BC, BC hs one of the highest populations of black bears in the world with as many as 15,000 animals.

Pretty much all of the province is considered “bear country” with bears inhabiting everything from the Coastal forests, through to the Interior grasslands.

- and this is why this shouldn't really be "news" to anyone, and goes just the same for coyotes. Pretty simple - if you're going for a walk in wildlife's neighborhood - don't be surprised if you actually see wildlife:

The bear story was a media release. More than one outlet picked it up.

What would be interesting news is reports of Sasquatch or Dogman sightings in the Okanagan area.

Id really enjoy that news!
