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.

Remember! Think safety first when encountering any wildlife. Peaceful co-existence can occur through knowledge and planning.
