Keep Wildlife Wild

Please do not feed raccoons.

  • Poor health and premature death can result from wildlife consuming food other than their natural food supply.
  • When fed, animals like raccoons and deer become habituated to human contact and are at higher risk of becoming aggressive. Keeping a safe distance from all wildlife and viewing them in a respectful manner will reduce the likelihood of a negative wildlife encounter.
  • Raccoons are potential carriers of rabies. If you see a raccoon behaving aggressively, please report the incident to park staff. Learn more about raccoon rabies on theOntario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s Website.
