Wildlife Services and Information
Published on: 2/13/2012 12:00 AM

The mission of Wildlife Services is to safeguard public health and safety, and to protect Nevada County agriculture, industrial and natural resources through the science and practice of wildlife animal damage control.


Wildlife Services is a cooperative program between the United States Department of Agriculture and Nevada County, and is responsible for the control of non-domestic animals such as skunks, opossums, raccoons, beavers, coyotes, mountain lions, bears, and damaging birds that pose a threat to human or animal health and safety, or cause damage to property, agriculture or livestock.


The main goal of the program is to remove only the animals that are causing the problem.  To contact the Federal Trapper assigned to Nevada County, call 530-470-2690 during office hours.
