Following the consultation period which ran over the Summer of 2021, the City of Winnipeg has consolidated recommendations for changes to the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw. Recommendations include: (i) live outdoor traps must be checked once per day; (ii) a prohibition on feeding wildlife (except the use of bird feeders); (iii) a license structure for domesticated pets and several recommendations regarding the spaying/neutering of companion animals; and (iv) several other recommendations related to prohibiting harmful practices (including pet tethering and weather recommendations). The recommendations will be considered by the City Council on January 14th. Read the report and recommendations here.
