SAFETY REMINDER: DON’T MESS WITH THE MAMMALS!
Our lakes are home to many types of wildlife, including beavers, otters, raccoons and muskrats. They thrive in remote lakeside areas well away from our beaches, and avoid people by nature.
We are reminding Colonists that while these animals may look cute, they should ALWAYS be viewed from a good distance and never harassed or followed. They are much faster, swim much better, bite much harder, and have lived here much longer than Lakers have.
Like other wildlife, they can be aggressive when feeding or protecting their young...
neither of which you may notice when first encountering one.
So if you see a furry critter, grab a pair of binoculars and enjoy them from a nearby dock.
They are part of what makes our town special!
