Some Red Deerians noticed a pair of moose taking a spring walk through city streets last weekend.
The City of Red Deer is reminding residents to exercise caution and avoid interacting with wildlife — for the safety of all concerned.
Wild animals need space and can act aggressively if they feel threatened. Stay an appropriate distance away, states a Facebook post from the City of Red Deer.
“Please do not feed wildlife or birds as this can cause dependency and aggression toward humans, as well as unnatural feeding patterns and overcrowding.”
To report a wildlife incident, contact Alberta Fish and Wildlife at 403-340-5142. Fish and Wildlife often refer injured or orphaned animals to the Medicine River Wildlife Centre for rehabilitation.
Outside of office hours, call Report a Poacher at 1-800-642-3800. The RAP line is available 24 hours a day and is toll-free across North America.
