Animal Services

The Township of North Dundas  provides a variety of animal related services.   

Wildlife

Wildlife is a natural part of the North Dundas community in both the rural and settlement areas. There are many ways property owners can reduce the likelihood of wildlife problems such as getting rid of sources of food and shelter on your property and putting out garbage the morning of collection instead of the night before. The Township of North Dundas does not offer a service to deal with nuisance or injured wildlife on private property.

The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) has resources available to help you if wildlife is repeatedly visiting/affecting your property. To find a private local wildlife control service search “wildlife control” or “wildlife removal” on 411.ca.

Coyotes

If a coyote is repeatedly visiting your property you can hire a Nuisance Wildlife Service to trap and release the coyote at a distance regulated by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR). Alternatively, if you live in a zone where firearms may be discharged, you can grant permission to a Licensed Hunter to attempt to shoot the coyote on the property provided you’ve obtained permission/authorization from the MNR.

For more information about living with coyotes and what to do visit the Ministry of Natural Resources website.”

The Township of North Dundas does not remove wildlife from private property, raccoons, skunks, foxes and any other wild animal found on private property should be removed with the assistance of a pest control specialist or a Wildlife Rehabilitator
