Animal Services is merely a resource for information and/or referral when it comes to most wildlife. Only potential rabies cases and cases where there is a matter of public safety should be handled directly through Animal Services.

Wildlife Emergencies

For wildlife emergencies involving humans, please call 911. Most animals can bite or claw and may harbor illnesses which can be transmitted to people, including rabies. We recommend contacting a wildlife professional regarding your concern with any wild animals.

Feeding Wildlife

Feeding wildlife (of any species) can be particularly dangerous for all involved. Check out this information on the Hazards of Feeding Wildlife (PDF).
