Wildlife such as squirrels, raccoons, birds and even deer can often be a problem in a growing community such as ours. Please remember these few helpful hints:
Most wild animals become a nuisance because they are looking for food. Please keep all pet food and garbage secured and you will notice that the problem will go elsewhere.
Baby animals such as birds and rabbits often find their way out of the nest. Keep your pets away from them and they should be fine. Animal Control Officers are not equipped to raise baby animals. The best advice is to let them be.
Most types of wildlife, including snakes, do their best to leave humans alone. Pay them the same respect, and you will not jeopardize your or their safety.
Do not attempt to capture wild animals, particularly aggressive ones! Call either the Animal Services Center or the North Carolina Wildlife Commission immediately. They know how to best deal with the situation.
We can also put you in contact with licensed wildlife rehabilitators.
