Beware of Wildlife


Labrador is home to an abundant array of beautiful, but wild animals. While we continue to live harmoniously together, there are some animals that are seen in and around our community that you should be aware of. And remember … it is never a good idea to feed wildlife. To report nuisance wildlife after-hours please call (709) 280.3747.

Black Bears

Black bears are common in and around the Churchill Falls area and throughout Labrador. They are usually present during the summer and fall months. While black bear attacks are extremely rare, it’s important to always remember they are wild animals who can be very dangerous. Please respect them and their environment.

Foxes can be seen throughout the Churchill Falls area year-round. These animals are usually fairly timid and rarely show signs of aggression. According to the Canadian Wildlife Association, healthy foxes pose no threat to people. However, foxes can carry diseases such as rabies which can cause them to become aggressive. Please respect them and their environment.
