Most wildlife never comes close to people. And in fact, many people enjoy seeing wildlife and find the viewing of wildlife a complement to their property and environment. So, what makes an animal a “nuisance”? For most people, it is when the animal becomes invasive or destructive. Some of the species most often cited as nuisance include coyotes, raccoons, foxes and deer

Colorado Snakes

Black Bears

Fox or Coyote






Does the animal really need help?

If you see a wild animal in distress, it is important to resist the temptation to interfere unless the animal is clearly sick, hurt, orphaned, or in immediate danger.

When evaluating a wildlife situation, the hands-on techniques will depend on whether the animal is an infant, adolescent, or adult. For more detailed information, please click on the button below.
