The Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Animal Control Section announces new procedures effective October 1, 2010 regarding nuisance wildlife trapping for the citizens of Anne Arundel County.
Anne Arundel County Animal Control will no longer be providing nuisance wildlife trapping or pick up services to the public. However, we are pleased to announce the Department of Natural Resources has over sixty (60) licensed and approved wildlife contractors to serve the citizens of the county.
These privately contracted and approved wildlife professionals will now be providing nuisance wildlife trapping and removal services for Anne Arundel County residents and businesses experiencing problems with nuisance wildlife occurring outside of homes and businesses. Additionally, a wildlife trapping phone line is staffed offering tips and advice on nuisance wildlife by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The number is: 877-463-6497.
Anne Arundel County Animal Control will continue to respond to reports of wildlife confined inside of homes and businesses.
