not really, i just don't have the means to easily take care of a raccoon as i could a little itty bitty squirrel. I would prefer to dispatch the coon, but i cant do it as swiftly as i could a squirrel and guarantee a quick solution for the animal.

Enjoy your new neighborhood pet penton hahaha

Wile E Coyote: A city bird's best friend

By Tom Spears, OTTAWA CITIZEN November 19, 2013 12:00 PM



OTTAWA — A top expert in urban coyotes says the animals bring an unexpected benefit to cities: They keep cats away from birds.

Stan Gehrt of Ohio State University has been charting coyotes for a decade as they move steadily into North American cities — places where they find few human friends.

Now Gehrt has found a weird relationship between urban coyotes and feral cats. Just last month, a report from Environment Canada says cats are the top killers of birds in Canada, killing an estimated 196 million a year.

But Gehrt says the feral cats are learning to stay away from the growing populations of urban coyotes.

And with the coyotes preferring green spaces — woodlots, ravines, parks, bushes that offer cover — the cats have shifted to the safety of built-up areas.

That takes them away from a lot of birds and small rodents, though coyotes will also eat squirrels and rabbits.

“It reduces the cats’ vulnerability to coyotes, but at the same time, it means the coyotes are essentially protecting these natural areas from cat predation,” he said in a written summary of his work.

He calls this a beneficial ecological service in urban natural areas.

Gehrt has published his work in a major research journal called PLoS One.

Coyotes do visit built-up areas, but usually don’t stay long.

“The way coyotes use developed areas is completely different from how cats use them,” Gehrt said. “They’re moving through those neighbourhoods or commercial areas very quickly, using every bit of cover they can find, to get from one hunting area to another, whereas the cats are sticking as close to the buildings as they can.”

“What the coyotes are doing is totally amazing,” Gehrt said. “They have to live in the urban matrix while avoiding people, which is pretty darn hard to do.”

His study didn’t measure the effect of feral cats on bird populations in the built-up area.

We had a lot of feral cats in our Wakefield neighbourhood but most females cats have disappeared since the summer, we suspect coyotes. The male cats are still walking around but no female cats.
