Residents Reminded Not to Feed Foxes

Conservation Officers in this province have responded to several reports recently where foxes have become accustomed to being fed by the public, resulting in unwanted encounters with property and pets.

As a result, the Department of Fisheries, Forestry, and Agriculture officials are advising the public to avoid feeding and handling wild foxes.

Feeding any wildlife, including foxes may also create a public safety hazard and lead to the destruction of the animal.

Conservation Officers will only handle wildlife if there is a public safety concern or circumstances warrant an animal’s removal.

Anyone encountering what they believe to be an aggressive animal is encouraged to contact their local Forestry and Wildlife district office.
