This picture was taken in northern quebec - heavy and dense forest areas and a large population of wildlife like these guys. For a lot of the smaller communities, its normal to see a lot of deer, moose, etc and they come up to the homes and eat out of the bird feeders and trash, or anywhere they can smell food. Their fear of humans is starting to decline, which in some ways makes it a bad thing.
Although I am a strong advocate *against* hunting, their hunting laws ensure they dont mass produce and overpopulate, starve, get smoked by cars, come into human-land, etc etc.
A little wildlife a-la-canuck knowledge for you.
