Amendments to the Animal Care and Control By-law 0098-04, as amended, to address Excess Bird Feeding

Jun 20, 2013

This week, the Animal Care and Control By-law 0098-04, was amended to assist staff in addressing complaints related to excess bird feeding. The definition of "sanitary condition" was changed to include pigeons; seed must be placed in a manner that maintains sanitary conditions.

Enforcement Action Plan Summary

Enforcement staff will seek compliance with the bylaw through education,
notification and applicable provisions of the bylaw, as well as providing educational information on bird/wildlife feeding. Mediation services are also available.

In cases where the situation does not improve, Animal Services staff will attend for a site visit of the property that may include an external source of subject matter expertise to address the problem or concerns directly with the owner and/or tenant.

If the bylaw is not complied with and there is sufficient evidence to proceed; Animal Services will prepare the charge with the complainant named and required to attend court.

For more information on the bylaw and enforcement plan review the corporate report:
