The City of Charlottetown has received numerous complaints in regard to the presence of coyotes.
Beth Hoar, parkland conservationist for the city, says the animals have compensatory reproduction, therefore boundaries do not work.
Hoar advises residents to remove food and water sources from properties, noting that they will feed on just about anything.
She also noted that coyotes, being a member of the dog family, will be attracted to animals outside that are in heat.
Since coyotes are mostly nocturnal hunters, residents are advised to not let their pets out at night time.
