Coyote Sightings Prompts Reminder 
Please be advised that following some recent coyote sightings in Georgina, the Ministry of Natural Resources is reminding residents about some important safety tips should you encounter one. An increase in coyote sightings can be attributed to changes in land use, agricultural practices, weather, supplemental feeding, and natural food shortages.
