How to Get Free Wildlife Removal

If you want free wildlife removal, I suggest the following:

  • Call your local city or county animal services and ask if they'll help with the wildlife problem.
  • Call your local police or sheriff's office, and ask if they'll help with the wildlife problem.
  • Call your local fire department and ask if they'll help with the wildlife problem.
  • Call a local wildlife rehabilitator and ask if they'll help with the wildlife problem.
  • Get a neighbor to do it.
  • Hire a professional and then stiff them on the bill (not nice, and you might face repercussions like a contractor's lien).
  • Solve the problem yourself - I offer lots of do-it-yourself guides on this website.
  • If all of the above fail, I recommend that you call a pro and pay for the service.

Should I hire a professional, or remove wild animals myself? I would suggest it has a lot to do with a couple of main factors, what animal are you dealing with and how confident are you in handling the animal safely for both you and the animal. If you have any doubts about whether you can handle the animal, as in it's a full-grown adult male coyote, then I would suggest some kind of professional help is almost mandatory. A lot of people will refuse to handle some animals, mostly raccoons because they believe there is a good chance they could catch rabies, the actual chances of catching rabies from a raccoon are almost zero, but anything that keeps them safe is probably a good thing.

Remember when dealing with wild animals most of them do not want anything to do with humans, to nearly all wild animals humans are predators, not only predators but what naturalists call apex predators, that means we are on top of the food chain so any animal like a raccoon or a squirrel looks at human beings as being potentially the most dangerous animal there ever likely to encounter. Their fear is eminently justified as for every human killed or injured by an animal each year millions of animals are killed by humans and that is just in the United States. The surprising part is nearly all humans don't like killing animals they are not going to eat, and most humans today do all their hunting in a supermarket not out in the woods.

Also as humans tear down more or more animal habitat and build more urban sprawl that a lot of animals are either being pushed out or have to learn to adapt to an urban lifestyle, the two most successful adapters so far are raccoons and coyotes, both of these animals had now got many generations that have been born and bred in urban areas, they are perfectly adapted to surviving around humans and our structures. If you take one of these animals out into the woods and “relocate” it “back to where it came from” the creature will surely die because it has no idea how to survive in the wilderness environment. It would be akin to taking a teenager from Manhattan and dropping them in the middle of Utah and expecting them to be able to survive.

If you have any doubts at all about either your ability to handle the animals safely or you just don't want to do it then by all means call a professional, your local animal control service can give you both advice on how to handle animal and on local professionals and the best recommendation will often come from a neighbor who is used that particular professional service, so ask around. In the end, doing it yourself is the best way to get free service!
