“Based on a CBC news article, controversy is brewing in the Shuniah municipality in the Thunder Bay region of Ontario regarding animal control. While residents are in favor of humane animal control, the safety of the human population will always be more important.
Dr. Jack Remus believes that animal control services should contain wild species, like wolves and lynx, which pose a threat to the safety of pets and children. Meanwhile, Maria Harding, the president of the town council, believes that trapping these animals is not the answer to the problem. Pet owners should take responsibility by not letting their pets go alone.
In neighboring Mississauga, ethical animal control is also an important issue. While urban wildlife in Ontario doesn’t pose much of a threat as wolves or lynx, they can also be invasive and damaging on their own. Animal control professionals from companies such as Skedaddle Wildlife Control should be hired to deal with them immediately.”
