City must provide Hotline to assist residents with human/wildlife conflicts.

Oct 23/03  With your help, we are making progress on the long climb back to having a progressive wildlife response in Eastern Ontario. However, even if wildlife rehabilitation services are re-established by volunteers, it will still require the City to directly help its residents through a City-run Hotline to deal with human/wildlife conflicts.  Click for reasons why city must provide Hotline service.

What can I do?

Let candidates for City Council in your Ward know of your support for a progressive wildlife response. Telephone or e-mail them, asking them where they stand on this issue. If we donít raise the issue, it simply wonít be addressed. There is currently no help for residents seeking help for wildlife mammals at all.  If this is to change, the City of Ottawa must be expected to do its part.
