Wildlife Management


The Regina Humane Society supports preventative and proactive methods of population control that reduce or eliminate the need for lethal intervention.

Non-lethal preventative alternatives include exclusion techniques and non-harmful physical or chemical deterrents to address perceived pests through integrated pest management techniques, which minimize the impact on the environment and other animal species.

Only when human health or herd/flock health are at serious risk, and where non-lethal methods have been exhausted, should methods of lethal control that minimize suffering and cause a quick death be considered. Such lethal methods should only be used as an exception and implemented during emergencies to alleviate a serious problem that has not been proactively addressed.
