Nuisance Wildlife

ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICERS RESPOND TO A NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS REGARDING WILDLIFE IN THE COUNTY, TO INCLUDE:

  • Sick or injured wildlife (the wild animal is visibly in distress, struggling to move, stumbling, excessively drooling, or is suffering from apparent physical injuries).
  • Wildlife inside of the living area of a residence
  • Human/domestic animal exposure to wildlife

The Animal Control Bureau does not set county-owned traps for nuisance wildlife, nor do they service personal traps. If you have a nuisance wildlife problem, please call the wildlife conflict hotline at 1-855-571-9003.
