Procedure for Responding to Dangerous Wildlife on Campus
Given the natural environment surrounding campus, wildlife may be encountered. All wildlife can present a danger to humans and should be avoided.
If you happen to encounter a wild animal:
- Remain calm
- Back away slowly. Do NOT run!
- Do not yell
- Do not antagonize the animal in any way (e.g. throwing things, kicking up dirt, etc.)
- Speak slowly and softly
- Head to a secure area, if possible (e.g. building, vehicle)
- Report the sighting to Campus Security at 604.389.8086. Campus Security reports wildlife sightings and encounters to the Conservation Officer Service’s 24 Hour Hotline (877.952.7277).
