Nuisance Wildlife Assistance
Colorado is known for its abundance of wildlife. While the presence of wildlife in your neighborhood may delight some citizens, the proximity of so much wildlife to so many people sometimes causes problems.
>> Avoiding coyote conflicts
Jefferson County Animal Control Officers are not authorized or trained to handle nuisance wildlife problems. However, there are many resources available -- nonprofit and for-profit -- to manage the problem. Below are just a few. Animal Control does not endorse any particular service/company, and strongly recommends that consumers check references, licenses, insurance, and bonding before hiring a company.

Dead Animal Removal
Animal Control Officers often remove stray, dead animals from the road or residential/commercial property as a courtesy to citizens if the animal weighs under 100 pounds. If reaching the animal is deemed unsafe or otherwise prohibitive, officers will not attempt to remove it.
