If you have any questions about the wildlife of Detroit, you can contact the Michigan Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Michigan Fish & Wildlife Agency. Michigan game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Detroit wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Detroit like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as Platinum Wildlife Removal at 313-447-0260.
Michigan State bird: American robin
State mammal: White-tailed deer

Michigan is nestled in the Great Lakes, and as you might expect, the state receives a lot of snow and a lot of violent storms. Most of the state has a short, warm summer followed by a long, extremely cold winter. Only the southernmost aspect of the state escapes the long winter, but temperatures are still below freezing. Because of the colder temperatures and shorter season of warmth, the animals in this part of the country are ones that can hibernate or build up enough food storage to make it through a long winter. There are not many large mountains in this state, but there is a good mix of grassland and coniferous and deciduous forests. The thick pine trees allow wildlife to remain sheltered during the violent snows and rains that bombard this state.
The animals in Michigan are those most commonly found in the colder, upper part of the United States. White-tailed deer abound, but they are accompanied by elk and mule deer. These large grazers pave the way for large predators like cougars, wolves, coyotes and black bears. While most of these predators are of no real concern to the average homeowner, black bears have been known to raid garbage bins and bird feeders. Coyotes and wolves can also be dangerous, especially since they hunt in packs. There is enough game in Michigan to keep these predators in the wild for the most part, but farmers are acutely aware of their presence during months when food for the canines is scarce.
Michigan also is home to an animal called the fisher, or the fisher cat. This creature resembles a large weasel, but it is amazingly ferocious. It lives primarily in trees, and is one of the few animals comfortable hunting a porcupine.
Nuisance animals in Michigan are often the same nuisance animals in many other states. The dark pine forests of the state are wonderful for raccoons, opossums, skunks, and squirrels. People living near nature will eventually have to deal with an animal coming into their yard, and most homeowners in this part of the country are well-versed in proper preventative methods. Thankfully, one of the pest creatures Michigan residents don't have to worry a lot about are venomous snakes. There is only one species of rattlesnake in the region, and it is so rare that few life-long residents have ever seen one.
