Pic­tou look­ing at wildlife prob­lem

The News (New Glasgow) - - PICTOU COUNTY -

PIC­TOU — The Town of Pic­tou wants its res­i­dents to stop feed­ing wildlife. Pic­tou Mayor Jim Ryan told coun­cil­lors Mon­day there is an over­pop­u­la­tion of pi­geons and rac­coons in the town that is caus­ing con­cern among res­i­dents. He asked that town staff find out if there is a town by­law al­ready about feed­ing wildlife, what other towns do to com­bat the prob­lem and pos­si­ble so­lu­tions for Pic­tou. “It’s not a brand new prob­lem but it is some­thing that needs to be ad­dressed,” Ryan said.
