Preservation Park trails near Guelph remain closed due to an increased number of coyote sightings.
General Manager of Parks and Recreation Heather Flaherty says the trails may be closed for a week while Coyote Watch Canada and the Guelph Humane Society complete an investigation.
The city says coyotes are likely raising their young and are more protective.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the city says residents should avoid the trails, dogs should be kept on a leash and people should refrain from feeding wildlife.
A ‘trail closed’ sign, seen above, is visible from the sidewalk on Kortright Road West across the street from Hanlon Creek Park.
