Bad Coyote (Clip)

Watch the film

This short documentary investigates a perceived threat in the rural Maritimes following a deadly coyote attack in the Cape Breton wilderness. Locals react to the attack by concluding that a new super-species is infiltrating their communities: part coyote and part wolf. But is there any truth to this suspicion, or is the response the result of fear and rumours?

This film contains scenes of violence. Viewer discretion is advised.

    “You can view the film at Halifax Public Libraries - at our Halifax North branch this morning: It's new, it's fearless, and it's very real. A Hybrid type of coyote has migrated to Eastern Canada spreading alarm. Hear from trappers, scientists, sheep farmers, and a victim's mother. (2011, 52 mins) Halifax North Memorial Wednesday, January 8/10:30 am ” — macinnm, 8 Jan 2014
