To the delight of Calgarians, our city is located close to the Rocky Mountains, Kananaskis Country and Fish Creek Provincial Park. Just as we are attracted to the great outdoors, urban wildlife is moving into our communities.
Calgarians are reminded that wildlife can be dangerous and not to approach them or feed them under any circumstances. Homeowners are asked to secure garbage, pet food and any other potential food sources that may attract animals. Even pet waste can attract coyotes or bears.
Please do the following if you encounter a problem with wildlife or injured wildlife.
