Stray/Wild Animal

What do I do when I see a stray dog or injured wild animal in my yard or neighborhood?

DO NOT approach the animal. Try to keep your distance and if possible go into your home or other shelter where the animal cannot reach you.

Call 911

Provide the Tri-Com communications center with as much information about the animal as you can. If possible, answer the following questions:

  • What type of an animal is it? (Dog, cat, fox, opossum, skunk, raccoon, deer, coyote, squirrel)
