Who can take nuisance wildlife?
Any person owning property may take nuisance wildlife
▪ causes (or is about to cause) property damage,
▪ presents a threat to public safety, or
▪ causes an annoyance within, under or upon a building
on their property or they may authorize another person to take nuisance wildlife on their behalf. Persons responsible for government owned property are considered “property owners”. Nuisance wildlife trappers and property owners who have problems with animals are responsible for complying with the many laws that protect animals. Before removing an animal, please seek assistance in understanding these laws and your options for resolving the problem.
You may want to have another individual take the nuisance animals for you.
FWC does not license nuisance wildlife trappers, but does allow them to advertise their services on our web site. Consult the FWC’s list of Nuisance Wildlife Trappers that Operate in Your County. Most trappers will charge a fee for their services. Nuisance wildlife trappers do not need to notify or obtain FWC authorization to take most destructive or nuisance wildlife from private property. All a nuisances wildlife trapper needs to take nuisance wildlife outdoors is the consent of the property owner. Likewise, property owners may take most nuisance wildlife on their own land without notifying or obtaining FWC authorization. Nuisance wildlife trappers attempting to trap in or under a structure should see “Nuisance Wildlife Trappers – Businesses” .
Live-captured nuisance wildlife must be released legally or euthanized humanely within 24 hours of capture or trap inspection. Any non-target wildlife should be released immediately at the capture site. Unless prohibited by rabies alert or quarantine issued by County Health Department or County Animal Control, live captured nuisance wildlife may be transported only for the purpose of euthanasia or for legal release, Euthanasia guidelines can be found on the Report of the American Veterinary Medical Association Panel on Euthanasia. Only native species of wildlife may be released.
Attack by or encounter with insects, reptiles, and/or animals.
This activity takes place outdoors and therefore includes risks associated with exposure to elements, excessive heat, hypothermia, impact of the body, encountering objects either natural or man-made, exposure to animals with the attendant risk of kicking, biting, shying away, running off or otherwise moving in an unanticipated manner causing injury and/or death. Native nuisance wildlife may be released on the property of the landowner where captured provided the release site and capture site are located on one contiguous piece of property. Native nuisance wildlife may be released off the capture site if the release site is a minimum of 40 contiguous acres, located in the same county as the capture site, and the person releasing the nuisance wildlife has in their possession written permission from the landowner of the release site allowing release on their property. Nuisance wildlife may not be released on federal, state, county, local or private lands without written permission of the landowner.
Customers do not have to be present when the trapper is re-setting, re-locating and re-baiting traps unless specified otherwise.
