Why do authorities have to shoot big wild animals when they wander into Ottawa?
A moose had to be shot on Thursday at Highway 416 and Pinecrest Road. Wild animals are not new to Ottawa. We had an elk shot near a Transitway station a few years ago. Bears wander in and out of the suburbs all ’round the city.
Why do not authorities have an emergency wild animal strategy and resources that avoid killing wild animals? It’s not like they haven’t had time to develop one.
The easy thing to do is shoot the animal and drag away the carcass.
The hard thing to do, apparently, is creating a plan to deal with wild animals without killing them before the emergency begins.
