Living With Wildlife
Dealing with WildlifeMany wild animals are born during the spring and summer months. In your own backyard, you may come across baby birds, rabbits, squirrels, raccoons and other young wildlife as they make they make their way into the world.
For many people, the pleasure of seeing these young creatures is mixed with a sense of protectiveness - of wanting to help them survive. But spotting a baby animal by itself doesn't necessarily mean it's an orphan. Many wildlife parents leave their young alone during the day, sometimes for long periods. The mother is usually nearby and quite conscious of her young. Also, keep in mind that despite their small size, many young animals are actually independent enough to fend for themselves.
Trapping of WildlifeConsistent with State Law, City of Adelanto Animal Care and Control prohibits the trapping of healthy wildlife.
Animal Care and Control will always assist in the capture of wildlife that poses a public health or safety risk.
