People moving out but animals moving in

It’s interesting to see the animals moving into New Brunswick.  The wild turkey population is reaching a level that there is interest in starting a hunting season.  A few weeks ago, a cougar was caught in a trap near Sussex – the first one formally sighted in a long time and I just read that a hunter shot a wolf thinking it was a coyote.   Wolves were hunted to extinction here more than a 100 years ago.

On a related note, New Brunswick has lost 12,000 young people aged 20-34 to net interprovincial migration in the past 10 years.

But New Brunswick has a significant positive net interprovincial migration of people aged 55 and up.
