It amazes me how much wildlife there in fairly urbanized areas. It's probably due to the amount of parkland scattered throughout town that serves as refuge for these animals.
Know it all.
Citified.ca is Victoria's most comprehensive research resource for new-build homes and commercial spaces.

There are deer in there now. Park staff said there haven't been deer in the park for the past 60 years. But there are some in there now.
Also the other night I was driving home from OakBay Rec. In the middle of Hillside Mall parking lot there was a Massive Buck, with the larget rack on it. It was midnight.

There are literally countless reports of cougars in parts of the USA where the cougar is supposed to be extinct. Officialdom doesn't even want to acknowledge the phenomenon. Black bears are also all over the place all of a sudden.
In actual fact this sort of thing hasn't happened "all of a sudden", deer have been reproducing like rabbits for years and years and various predators like cougars, black bears and even alligators have been gradually returning to their old ranges (in the case of the cougars, because of the deer) over the course of the past several decades.
Heck, alligators have been expanding their natural range, since they're protected now*. Consider this:
Alligators aren’t suppose to be this far north. Nevertheless, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has gotten reports of alligator sightings on McKellar Lake, a backwater of the Mississippi just south of Memphis, and at T.O. Fuller State Park, north of the city. Up to five alligators may have been seen, including one said to be close to 7 feet long that was reportedly spotted on a bank beside McKellar Lake. Alligators’ natural range is believed to end south of Tennessee
*EDIT: I see alligators were actually taken off the endangered list back in 1977, although they're still on the protected list, with the status of " threatened due to similarity of appearance". The intention behind this status is not to protect the abundant alligator but rather the endangered American crocodile and the black caiman.

I can imagine that the squirrel would not be too impressed have that owl sitting on its turf.
A couple of weeks ago I saw a squirrel walk about 20 yards along a skinny hydro wire! I was worried it would fall down from that great height, but no problem..until it came to the end of the line. There was a tree close by, but it was a bit of a jump..the squirrel waited for a minute or so, trying to figure out what to do..then made a giant leap, grapped onto a flimsy branch with only its two front paws..swung up and down a couple of times while hanging on, then leaped to the rest of the tree. gotta love those squirrels.

There used to be an owl by my house, but I havn't seen him much this year. Maybe a squirrel finally got him..

It was really funny to see it and really cool to capture it on camera.
