Did you know …

Animal control is a municipal responsibility and is governed by a municipal bylaw. However control of dangerous animals is governed by legislation.

A “dangerous animal” is one that:

  2. is known to attack without provocation;

  3. has bitten or attacked a person or domestic animal without provocation;

  4. is owned primarily for the purpose of fighting or is trained for fighting.

If you have concerns about a dangerous animal in your area, please contact your local city, town or RM office for assistance.
