One attack in Hastings County
ONTARIO — Not long ago, cougars were classed as extinct in Ontario. Today, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs officially reports that North America’s largest cat — in three separate cases — killed three individual farm animals in 2020.
That’s according to reports from municipal livestock valuers in Hastings and Huron Counties and on Manitoulin Island.
Ontario’s top predator, the coyote, was responsible for 1,431 farm animal kills last year.
