As the weather cools, and food supplies disappear, wild animals tend to come closer to civilization, hunting for food and shelter. Remember all the skunk smells in the area last winter? That time of the year is coming again. What if a skunk or some other wild animal shows up in your yard? What should you do?
Many people think the solution is to take care of the problem on their own. This can be both dangerous and illegal. Wild animals are not friendly. They can also cause a lot of damage. Some wild animals carry diseases. To get help with wild animal control in Mountain View, contact the California Department of Fish and Game for assistance. There may be different organizations that will handle the problem depending on what kind of animal it is and they can advise you. If you are under attack or threatened by a wild animal call 911.
