The Half Moon Bay area is home to a pack or two of wild coyotes. They can typically be heard at night in the Western portion of the area, towards Cedarview Road.

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources provides a lot of information on how to "Live with Coyotes" on their website.

Some of the most important information is what to do if you encounter a coyote:

  • Never approach or touch a coyote.
  • Do not turn your back on, or run from, a coyote.
  • Back away from the coyote while remaining calm.
  • Stand tall, wave your hands and make lots of noise.
  • Carry a flashlight at night to scare off coyotes.
  • If a coyote poses an immediate threat or danger to public safety, call 911.
