Camping & Wildlife

Protecting Yourself and Wildlife While Enjoying the Outdoors

Residents of the County can experience problems when natural elements turn unfriendly. Nature can provide you with some wonderful neighbours. Most, such as deer, are positive additions to the environment.

However, even harmless animals like deer can cross the road unexpectedly and cause traffic accidents. Rural development encroaches on the traditional habitat of coyotes, cougars, bears and other animals that can be dangerous and you need to know how to deal with them.

In general, it is best to enjoy wildlife from a distance and know that if you do not handle your pets and trash properly, it could cause problems for you and the wildlife.


Yellowhead County partners with other federal, provincial and municipal enforcement agencies in order to provide the best services possible to county residents. Please visit our partner’s websites for more information on the services they provide:
