Wills Creek is a unique community experience where we are blessed to live near creeks and forests. We are also blessed to share this same space with our local wildlife such as rabbits and coyotes but at times can find ourselves in conflict.
As we all know there is no shortage of rabbits in Wills Creek. Rabbits can consume approximately 1/2 kg of green vegetation daily and are naturally attracted to orchards, gardens or agricultural crops when these fixtures are located in close proximity to rabbit habitat. Damage can also occur when natural rabbit food is scarce or has dried up in hot weather.
Recently there was an incident where it was reported that someone may have been hunting rabbits on Strata property. It is important to note that under the Wildlife Act, rabbits are designated and regulated – as “wildlife” making them for the most part illegal to hunt. Municipal bylaws also prohibit the use of traps, firearms and bows for this purpose.
Please be aware it is illegal to hunt any wildlife on Strata property and if you witness any illegal act especially ones involving a firearm, report it immediately to the police and your Safety and Security Committee.
If you are experiencing property damage as a result of rabbits, please contact Strata as we do not want residents taking matters into their own hands. Let’s keep our community as safe as possible and try to live in harmony with our fury friends.
