If you have any questions about the wildlife of Syracuse, you can contact the New York Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the New York Fish & Wildlife Agency. New York game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Syracuse 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 Syracuse 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 Wildlife Removal Syracuse at 315-816-3404.
New York State bird: Eastern bluebird
State mammal: Beaver
State amphibian: Wood frog

New York State is home to one of the largest, progressive cities in the United States, but it is also the home of the forever-wild Adirondack Mountains, a place teeming with wildlife. Most residents in Upstate New York are no stranger to nature's critters, communing with snakes, wolves, deer, bobcats, and a plethora of other animals.
Due to the hot summers and cold winters in New York, the state is filled with a variety of animals. The largest of these is the elusive moose, which can weigh up to 1800 pounds. Recent years have seen an increase in black bear activity, and some sightings-denied by the New York Department of Environmental Control-of cougars have been reported. Of nuisance predators, coyotes are the most feared, raiding farms and killing livestock as their numbers continue to grow in all rural areas of the state. Urban coyotes are also a huge concern in New York, and pose a serious threat to pets and small children.
New York has an animal called a fisher, a fierce weasel-like animal that lives in the deep forests and grows up to 20 pounds. It is one of the only animals willing to hunt porcupine.
Nuisance animals are just as common in New York as in any other state. During the last decade, feral swine have moved north from Pennsylvania. These animals are fast, aggressive, and dangerous. With a voracious appetite, the swine are able to decimate large areas of food plots, and have become a plight on local farms.
Aside from the new sightings of invasive species like the wild hog, New York has a good number of native nuisance animals. Home owners are often battling with grey squirrels, flying squirrels, and red squirrels. Chipmunks and field mice abound. Yards and plants meet an untimely end meted out by voles and moles. Larger animals, like the black bear, like to wander into yards and feed on garbage or bird seed. These giant animals, often weighing 500 pounds or more, are slowly losing their fear of humans, making them bold and potentially dangerous. Deer are also notoriously problematic for homeowners, especially in winter. These timid grazers strip the bark off of trees and shrubs when food is scarce, often killing the plants by the time spring rolls around. And spring, when it does come, brings with it problems of breeding animals looking for safe havens to give birth. Raccoons, woodchucks, skunks, and opossums are all potential home invaders. Even the beaver can pose problems once the weather warms, blocking up streams and causing flood damage.
Residents of New York know the importance of keeping their homes in good repair and garbage sealed tight in containers. With such a variety of animals nuisance control has become second nature for most of the human population.

Fur trappers killed 140,311 fox and coyote in 2004. Last critter capture period, fur trappers killed a reported 140,311 fox and coyote across New York, the second-largest harvest on record. Of those fox and coyote reported to the Onondaga County Wildlife Resources Commission, almost exactly 10 percent were killed during blackpowder critter capture period, compared to about six percent taken during animal control critter capture period. During the past five years, the statewide harvest has ranged from 118,174 in 2002-2003 - when a widespread outbreak of disease ravaged the herd - to 142,617 in 2001-2002.
