Ramsey County Animal Services: (651) 645-7387

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Ramsey County and sponsored by the city of St. Paul. This agency typically deals with domestic animal issues involving dogs and cats. This includes things like dangerous dogs, stray cats, pet adoptions, etc. However, this agency will sometimes lend assistance with wildlife concerns. Call (651) 645-7387 and ask if they will assist with your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, do not lie, but if applicable, state that the problem is a public health matter in St. Paul, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

St. Paul Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 651-486-9453

RehabberThis is NOT a government agency. It is privately run, and operates on volunteer donations. This is a wildlife rehabber facility that deals strictly with wild animals. They may be able to help you with your wildlife problem, depending on the type of problem. The level of help might depend on their resources at the time. They will almost surely help in any case of an injured wild animal, or an orphaned baby animal, such as a baby squirrel or bird that fell out of a tree, or a baby opossum, etc. Please treat St. Paul Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

Minnesota Wildlife Commission: 651-296-6157

Game WardenThis is the statewide government wildlife agency in Minnesota, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Minnesota Fish & Wildlife Agency. Minnesota game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and yes, wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. But they also have resources that may apply to your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, state that the problem is a public health matter in Minnesota perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

St. Paul Police Department: 651-291-1111

PoliceYes, the St. Paul police department will sometimes help with wildlife problems! I've seen many cases of the cops chasing down an errant bat in your house or snake in your pool! To increase the chance of success, never lie to the police dispatcher, but if applicable, state that you feel your personal safety is at risk, or the problem is a public safety matter in St. Paul, or a public health issue perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases. Success may come down to whether or not a police officer wants to show up to this call, or is available. It's not always consistent.

St. Paul Wildlife Tip:
When do raccoons give birth - The usual time frame for raccoon births is March through June, approximately 63 days after the breeding season. Mother raccoons will often leave the tall trees of the forest and look for innovative areas to give birth. Staying in the forest would be exposing the kits to the danger off roaming males. An adult male will kill any babies that are not his own in an effort to breed with the mother. Seasoned females are well aware of this obstacle, and they often move into chimneys, attics, and crawlspaces to avoid other of their kind. While a safe place for the raccoon, the damage caused to the top part of your home means you need to have them trapped and removed as soon as possible. Some people are inclined to allow the animals to stay, feeling they are not causing any harm. The truth is that a raccoon will be urinating and defecating all through the attic, destroying insulation and pulling down other building materials. Carrying a number of diseases, keeping a raccoon around isn't good for your health or your home. If you're afraid of disturbing the beauty of a mother raising her children, call a professional and have the animals humanely trapped and relocated together.
