Because Tillsonburg is situated in and around a vast number of ravines, it is not unusual to encounter wildlife in your neighbourhood.

Issues can often arise when intentional feeding (leaving out grain, bread, nuts, etc.) or unintentional feeding (outdoor pet food, compost, unsecured gardens or garbage, fish ponds, etc.) occurs. This type of unnatural feeding can have significant negative consequences for the health and behaviour of wildlife and can cause challenges for property owners. For information on control of nuisance wildlife, visit the Ministry of Natural Resources website.

Nuisance wildlife (raccoons, skunks, squirrels, etc.) removal from private property is the responsibility of the property owner.
