Lillooet-Lytton RCMP is urging caution after reports of multiple wolf sightings in Lillooet in the last week.
Due to recent wolf sightings in Lillooet, the BC Conservation Officer Service encourages the public to secure all pets and livestock when possible.
Wolves are territorial animals with a very large habitat range; they are expected to see and hear wolves in rural areas. The primary natural food source for wolves is large ungulates such as deer and moose. The BC Conservation Officer Service (BCCOS) is the lead agency for dealing with wildlife calls, and reports can be made to 1-877-952-7277 for wildlife-related concerns, including wolf sightings in town.
Lillooet-Lytton RCMP can be contacted if there are any immediate public safety concerns regarding wildlife. Please do not approach and feed any wolves or other wildlife and report any urban sightings to the Report a Poacher and Polluter hotline 1-877-952-7277.
