The Town of Parry Sound is full of wildlife, including reptiles, birds, and mammals. Wildlife is always best viewed from a distance.

Nuisance Prevention

To prevent nuisance animals the Town of Parry Sound requires that you keep all garbage stored in an enclosed container, if it is stored outside. This container can be as simple as a garbage can with a lid or it can be something more secure - like a shed.

Feeding Wildlife

The Town of Parry Sound does not have a municipal bylaw prohibiting people from feeding wildlife.  The Town supports the Ministry of Natural Resources view that feeding wild animals may do more harm than good.


If you feel there is an immediate threat to a person from wildlife call the police at 911.

Non-Emergency Nuisance Bear

To report a nuisance bear call the Bear Wise reporting line: 1-866-514-2327.
