Reporting Wildlife Issues

Wildlife in Your Neighborhood
Are you a resident of Frederick and don’t know what to do about raccoons, skunks, bats, coyotes, and other animal species? For the most part, these are protected species per the Colorado Division of Wildlife and fall under their jurisdiction.

Please contact the Colorado Division of Wildlife at the Main Customer Service number of (303) 297-1192 for additional questions.

Urban Wildlife Rescue
Alternatively, visit the website of the Urban Wildlife Rescue to inquire about on-site removal of these animals, or to learn about “home remedies” created to humanely evict animals from a resident’s property. These remedies are often species-dependent, and offer a cheap alternative for homeowners in the Town of Frederick. Please note that the Community Services Unit is not directly affiliated with the Urban Wildlife Rescue in any way, and is only providing this information as a resource to our residents.

When to Call Code Enforcement
Lastly, please contact the Community Services Unit if an animal, wild or domestic, seems sick or is acting abnormally (e.g. a nocturnal animal like a bat that is observed to be highly active during the day). In these cases, the Community Services Unit may contact the North East Regional Office of the Division of Wildlife to report these animals to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
