Wildlife is taking over Oak Bay

How can we protect ourselves from these large, ornery beasts that show absolutely no fear or respect when confronted by yours truly

The word is out.

Since Oak Bay council hasn’t had the courage to deal with the deer, these critters have let their friends know that Oak Bay is a safe harbour for all fugitive wildlife. No longer willing to confine itself to Beacon Hill Park, a peacock has moved into Oak Bay.

What will be next?

How can we protect ourselves from these large, ornery beasts that show absolutely no fear or respect when confronted by yours truly. Have you seen the claws on these guys?

Trembling in fear, I watched as he arrogantly sauntered up the driveway and over to my elderly neighbour’s property.

I shudder to think what could have become of them had they been confronted by this monster. It left a chill in my spine.
