Human, Pet & Coyote Interaction

As humans, along with our domestic pets, continue to expand into the natural habitat of wildlife, wild animals, including coyotes, have had to adapt to life in the city. In urban environments, food sources and shelter are plentiful and natural predators are limited, so it can be an environment to thrive in.  

Wildlife has as much right to survival on this planet as we do, and they are part of the ecosystem, so we need to educate ourselves on how we can share the environment with wildlife yet ensure our children and pets remain safe.

OWREN Conference

Dog Speed's team attended the OWREN Conference in Niagara Falls this month (Ontario Wildlife Rehabilitator and Education Network).We took the Basic and Beyond Basic courses and, if we scored over 80% on the exam, will qualify us to apply to the Ministry of Natural Resources for our Wildlife Custodian Authorizations!It was a very informative conference. We learned basic medical procedures including how to subQ, tube feed, and splint broken bones, practicing on cadaver animals and birds.  We also got to meet/hold various live turtles and snakes courtesy of Scales Nature Park!
