It is illegal to feed wildlife in Vancouver on public and private property – and it may be the cause of a series of negative encounters with raccoons.
Recent media reports suggest an increase in coyote activity in the Kitsilano area. Today, the Park Board has an opportunity to be proactive and prevent negative encounters by mitigating problematic human behaviour and ensuring ecologically sound management practices are in place.
Park Board staff last night presented their next steps and strategy for coexisting with coyotes in Vancouver’s Stanley Park.
Following the announcement that more coyotes will be killed, we are left feeling anger, sadness and frustration that opportunities to prevent this outcome were ignored or missed.
