The Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune (MRNF) asks the Lower North Shore population to be vigilant, following reports of wolves behaving in an aggressive and threatening manner in their area. In particular, wolves have attacked pet dogs in the Brador area, near Blanc-Sablon.
This behaviour is extremely unusual, and the MRNF therefore asks members of the general public to report any sightings of wolves near their homes.
Citizens may telephone the SOS Poaching line (1-800-463-2191) at any time. Residents of the Blanc-Sablon area may call the Sûreté du Québec at 418 461-2162 or the Pakuashipi Public Security Service at 418 947-2787.
The general public is asked to supervise their domestic animals at all times. In addition, it is recommended that household garbage be kept indoors, so as not to attract the wolves.
