We are demanding that Ottawa stops killing beaver and other wildlife, and adopts humane, progressive practices in the Wildlife Strategy. Since other municipalities have already done this, why can't Ottawa, the nation's capital, do the same? The City of Ottawa can no longer keep crushing, strangling, gassing, poisoning and shooting wildlife. The majority of residents want humane, progressive methods to deal with human-animal interactions. The long-awaited Wildlife Strategy is business as usual and will not help wildlife. We want the Mayor to take action and ensure that the Wildlife Strategy will respect wildlife and not resort to killing.

Ottawa's Wildlife Strategy confirms what a growing number of Ottawa residents see as a concerning trend - that the City is unwilling and unable to work with the community. From a wildlife perspective, the strategy will mean more needless deaths of animals as well as public frustration and controversy, with Ottawa continuing to be seen as the “most wildlife unfriendly city in Canada”.   We want Mayor Jim Watson to insist on a Wildlife Strategy that respects wildlife by implementing humane and progressive methods for dealing with human-wildlife interactions.

Tell Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson that the destruction of wildlife in the Nation’s Capital must stop!

Stop the killing of wildlife in Ottawa

The City of Ottawa can no longer keep crushing, strangling, gassing, poisoning and shooting wildlife. The majority of residents want humane, progressive methods to deal with human-animal interactions. The long-awaited Wildlife Strategy is business as usual and will not help wildlife. We want the Mayor to take action and ensure that the Wildlife Strategy will respect wildlife and not resort to killing.
