Exotic Animals in Hastings Highlands
Maynooth, ON – The Municipality’s planning department received preliminary details around a safari experience concept that included exotic animals in Hastings Highlands.
Though no formal applications have been received, Council and municipal staff are reviewing the matter and staying abreast of the situation.
Private individuals simply owning exotic animals does not contravene any existing municipal bylaw. No commercial use involving exotic animals has been created on any property and there is no application to do so before the Municipality.
The municipality will follow the advice of its lawyer.
