December 21, 2015 Conservation Officers remind Yukoners that wildlife remains active in winter and wolf activity is not uncommon. Residents and pet owners are asked to take basic precautions to keep animals and property safe from wildlife. Keep pets indoors, in a dog run or completely fenced yard; don't let pets roam free; always walk your dogs on a leash; and keep pet food indoors. We have a variety of information on how to keep pets and wildlife safe available on our website. Any aggressive behaviour from wildlife should be reported to the Conservation Officer TIPP line at 1-800-661-0525.
