Welcoming wildlife into the community

They are three of Hilliard’s most popular residents.

People see them around town daily. They even have their own dedicated community social media page!

We’re talking turkey – or technically, turkeys, because usually three of them can be found. And they represent just one example of wildlife Hilliard residents live alongside in our community. Other common creatures include Canada geese, deer, raccoons, opossums, rabbits and coyotes.

Some residents welcome this kind of wildlife as a great part of living in a community that maintains wooded and agricultural areas. Others point to issues caused by the interactions humans and wildlife are bound to experience when people expand into territory that was once the home of these animals.

By observing a few basic rules, humans and wild animals can live in harmony.
