Wildlife in Mississauga
We have a wide variety of wildlife in Mississauga including coyotes, deer, foxes and raccoons.
While we share our city with these animals, we should be mindful of their habits and how we interact with them.
Please do not feed wild animals. It can disrupt their natural rhythm and potentially make them more aggressive towards humans. In Mississauga, feeding wildlife is prohibited under the Animal Care and Control By-law.
If you encounter a wild animal in distress, don’t approach it. Call Mississauga Animal Services at 905-896-5858.
