Due to an ever-evolving philosophy on the handling of wildlife in an urban setting, Animal Services has made many changes to the way we handle wildlife in our city. Some of these changes include:
- Not trapping apparent healthy wildlife that do not pose a threat
- Taking a pro-active approach to deterring wildlife from entering urban settings via hazing techniques and educating the public to co-exist with existing wildlife
This approach is designed both to save money and to recognize the fact that trapping and removing wildlife is a reactive approach and is a temporary solution to a permanent problem.
