  • Do not approach wild animals or their nesting areas and dens
  • Do not touch wild animals, even if they appear tame, sick or injured
  • Never feed wild animals
  • Keep dogs on leash and away from wild animals

Why you shouldn’t interact with wild animals?

  • Wild animals can bite, scratch or injure people and pets
  • Wild animals may transmit diseases, such as rabies, to people and pets
  • Feeding wild animals increases their presence and causes them to lose their fear of people
  • Feeding and disturbing wild animals is prohibited under City bylaws

If you see injured, sick or very young wildlife, call 311.
