DRONE HARRASSING TREE SWALLOWS


FOSS recently received a disturbing report of someone flying a drone over the Swallow Field in what appeared to be a deliberate attempt to harass the birds in their nesting area.


Under the 2018 Toronto Municipal Code # 608 (Parks), it is illegal to fly drones or harass wildlife in City parks.

"608-19. Model aircraft and rockets.
While in a park, no person shall operate powered models of aircraft, rockets, watercraft or vehicles
unless authorized by permit."


Enforcement of the Code's provisions is the responsibility of provincial enforcement officers …. i.e. a police officer.
