Living With Wildlife

Living With Wildlife

We know you love wildlife, but feeding wildlife only hurts the animals you love. Feeding wildlife can degrade the habitat, water quality and quality of life for not only the animals being fed but also for citizens negatively-affected by nuisance behavior caused by fed wildlife. View the "Love Me Don't Feed Me" videos below to learn more.

 


Wildlife awareness and safety
is essential to you and your pet's quality of life. Explore the topics below to learn more about living with local wildlife.


The city of Aurora does not remove or relocate wildlife from private property. For human and animal health and welfare reasons, the state restricts the relocation of most wildlife species. If you are experiencing conflict with wildlife on your property and you wish to have it removed, please contact a private pest management specialist. You can find a list of providers in your phone book or by searching online. If you are experiencing conflict with wildlife on your property and seek advice on how to deter animals from your property, please call our Wildlife Hotline at 303.326.8435.
