Animal control

racoonsResidents can contact the Montreal SPCA directly at 514-735-2711 to report wild animals. Many wild animals, such as skunks, groundhogs, raccoons, foxes and so on, are protected by wildlife regulations so they cannot be caged unless they are trapped in the ceiling, roof, shed, or enclosed balcony area.

These wild animals are then released in the area, and most often on the property itself. That means you should fix the problem of where the animal got in as this is the area that it knows best. The wild animals do not get relocated to the wilderness again.

If the wild animals are digging up the property or roaming around, the SPCA can recommend techniques and products that can deter these animals. The only time an animal is removed is if it is sick or injured.
