Moose Encounter! Safety issue...do not feed

Moose Encounter!

This recently in from an MPOA member: 

My wife and I had an encounter with a moose at our cottage on the weekend

It apparently has been hanging around cottages on lower Mazinaw.   The MNR was contacted and has provided the following advice:

  • This is a real danger
  • We need a concerted effort by all all cottagers to have this moose return to the wild
  • Do not feed


Here is a link to information on our website regarding feeding wildlife.  I hope you and members of your cottage association find this information helpful.  https://www.ontario.ca/page/feeding-wildlife-dos-and-donts .  You may also find other useful information at: https://www.ontario.ca/page/wildlife-and-nature.
