PRESENCE OF WOLVES IN THE LOWER NORTH-SHORE



    SEPT-ILES, QC, Feb. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - The Ministère des Ressources
naturelles et de la Faune (MRNF) asks the Lower North Shore population to be
vigilant, following reports of wolves behaving in an aggressive and
threatening manner in their area. In particular, wolves have attacked pet dogs
in the Brador area, near Blanc-Sablon.
    This behaviour is extremely unusual, and the MRNF therefore asks members
of the general public to report any sightings of wolves near their homes.
    Citizens may telephone the SOS Poaching line (1-800-463-2191) at any
time. Residents of the Blanc-Sablon area may call the Sûreté du Québec at 418
461-2162 or the Pakuashipi Public Security Service at 418 947-2787.
    The general public is asked to supervise their domestic animals at all
times. In addition, it is recommended that household garbage be kept indoors,
so as not to attract the wolves.
