Wildlife in Mississauga

While we share our city with many wild animals, including coyotes, foxes, raccoons and skunks, we should be mindful of their habits and how we interact with them.

Please do not feed wild animals. It can disrupt their natural rhythm and potentially make them more aggressive towards humans. In Mississauga, feeding wildlife is prohibited under the Animal Care and Control By-law.
