With increasing human population, there becomes less area for wildlife to exist. Many species relocate while others learn to successfully co-exist with humans. Co-existence can bring problems such as:
  • Scavenging from trash cans  
  • Destruction of plant life in yards
  • Potential for human / wildlife contact that neither desires

If you encounter problems with wild animals in your area, contact the LA County Department of Animal Care & Control at (626) 962-3577.  You may also contact the Irwindale Police Department at (626) 430-2244 or dial 9-1-1 for emergencies.
