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.
For wildlife emergencies (such as possible exposure of people or pets to rabies), please call 911. Many animals can bite or claw and may harbor illnesses which can be transmitted to people. We recommend contacting a wildlife professional regarding general concerns or inquiries about any wild animals (such as sightings).

Recent sightings of coyotes in our area have prompted public interest in this species and underscore the need to follow the practices recommended by the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission for co-existing with coyotes.
