Feeding of Wildlife

The Town and Fish and Wildlife strongly discourage the feeding of wildlife for the following reasons listed on the Fish and Wildlife website:

Never feed wildlife. Wildlife feeding on food from people and human-use areas not only prevents wildlife from getting nutrition from natural food sources, it teaches wildlife to associate people with food. This can lead to problematic, even dangerous, situations that may result in human injury and/or wildlife being destroyed.

Never approach wildlife. It may be stressful for wildlife when someone enters their territory. Over time, wildlife can become accustomed to people, increasing the risk of negative human-wildlife encounters. Always respect the "personal space" of wildlife to help them stay wild. Also keep in mind that bats, skunks and foxes are carriers of rabies and, if seen acting oddly, must be avoided, even if your intention is to help.

Also watch out for the occasional cougar which passes through our community.

Kudos to Raymond and Stirling who did a great job hosting this year’s Chautauqua. The “Diggers” play was a big hit and many of the actors were from Magrath.
