3 weeks ago, information sessions were held to warn people not to feed the coyotes, because people had been doing it so much that the animals were becoming less afraid of humans. Some of them even began stalking people.

This week, there have been several sightings near the Saint-André-Apôtre elementary school in Ahuntsic-Cartierville. Coyotes have been spotted by a few students and even the school crossing guard. The school sent out notices to warn parent about the situation.
