Evidence of Range Expansion of Eastern Coyotes, Canis latrans, in Labrador

Tony E. Chubbs, Frank R. Phillips

Abstract


Eastern Coyotes were first documented in central Labrador in 1995 and have recently been recorded in coastal Labrador and at three additional locations in central and western Labrador. Here we document additional records indicating range expansion and the possibility of an established population. We also examine the future management of the species in Labrador and its possible effect on this northern ecosystem.
