Living in the County usually means a rural lifestyle, and with a rural lifestyle comes interaction with animals; from domestic pets to the agricultural industry, to wildlife (whether experienced on your property or while out exploring the great outdoors.)
The County hosts a wide range of animal-related workshops covering issues related to the animal industry, predatory animals, and more.
Yellowhead County Bylaw Enforcement Officers are responsible for dealing with all animal bylaw related enforcement issues. In addition to this, the County also partners with different organizations such as Alberta Sustainable Resource Development for education, planning, and enforcement and safety-related issues.
