Urban Wildlife Control

The City of Thunder Bay is home to many species of wildlife, and although we enjoy seeing them in their natural habitat, conflicts can arise when wild animals make their homes in our backyards. Preventative measures, such as removing garbage and pet food from the vicinity of your house, will decrease the likelihood of an unpleasant encounter.
