With a population of just over 112,000, East York is a former municipality within the city of Toronto. East York was Canada’s only borough, until the Toronto megacity amalgamation in 1998. East York is located north of Danforth Avenue between the Don River and Victoria Park Avenue. There are many neighbourhoods within the neighbourhood such as Leaside, Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park, Woodbine Heights, and Crescent Town. Taylor Creek Park runs through East York and is a four kilometre stretch of forest, following the path of the Taylor-Massey Creek. A host of wildlife may be found in the park, including rabbits, foxes, squirrels, chipmunks and a variety of birds.

Large retail areas are found in older buildings throughout East York, attracting pigeons and other pest birds to storefront signage and ledges. The uric acid in pigeon feces is highly corrosive and extensive damage to air conditioning units is commonplace. Besides physical damage, the bacteria, fungal agents and ectoparasites found in pigeon droppings represent a serious health risk. The inner heart of East York is made up of mostly older homes built prior to 1960. Older homes often require additional repairs and maintenance and not doing so leaves those homes open for wildlife like raccoons, skunks and squirrels to find a way in.

Raccoons are a nuisance to homeowners, causing damage to buildings such as chewing holes in walls and damaging duct work, fascia, etc. Raccoon feces may be very toxic to humans, carrying diseases like roundworm, giardia and leptospirosis. Squirrels cause less damage than raccoons within a home, but are nocturnal and generate noises that cause anxiety and concern for homeowners, causing interference with a good night sleep. Skunks may burrow under porches or buildings by entering foundation openings and the fluid they discharge may cause temporary pain and temporary blindness to pets and humans if sprayed in the eye.
