Westmount Park – Please do not “feed” the squirrels

From Wikipedia:

“Squirrels’ diets consist primarily of a wide variety of plants, including nuts, seeds, conifer cones, fruits, fungi, and green vegetation.”

I noticed this pile of pita bread, left untouched, over a twelve hour period under a tree. I have also seen baguettes, and every other assortment of bread.

This is, unfortunately, a common occurrence early in the mornings – in spite of the City’s Bylaw 257.

For dogs, like ours, that have chronic pancreatitis (and must be strictly monitored as to what they eat) this issue is a very serious, and expensive (in terms of veterinary fees) problem.
