Scary incident for a man and his dogs at a Winnipeg park — involving coyotes.
He was walking his two large dogs Friday night at around 9:30 at Kilcona Off-Leash Dog Park near Springfield Road, when he encountered what appeared to be three large coyotes.
The animals then started to circle him and his dogs, and followed him to his vehicle, and kept following until he drove out of the park.
Police say there have been a number of coyotes spotted at Kilcona Park recently, and point out the animals are most active around sunrise and sunset.
They say if you go to the park with your dog around those times, to keep the dog on a leash, and if you have a small dog — pick it up if you’re confronted.
If you run into aggressive wildlife in the city, call the police at 204 986-6222 if the situation is not an emergency. If it is, call 911.
