The city has received reports that residents may be leaving food accessible to wildlife prompting the delivery of a hand delivered envelope containing information about the danger of such a practice. PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE WILDLIFE.
"Feeding wild animals and birds can become habit forming making them dependent on a food source or unwilling to forage naturally which can lead to illness, disease or injury"
"Feeding wild animals can interfere with natural instincts and behaviours and could lead to human/wildlife conflicts.
