Report Dead Fish and Wildlife
For removal of a dead animal on a road or highway, contact your local road commission office or local police non-emergency department.
To report dead fish or wildlife, contact your state fish and wildlife offices.
If you suspect that someone shot, poisoned, electrocuted, or otherwise killed an animal under suspicious circumstances, report it to a regional U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Law Enforcement office.
Abandoned or Injured Animal
If you find a young animal, do not assume it has been abandoned. Often, the parents are just out hunting or feeding. Wait at least four hours for the parent to return before taking action.
Once you are certain that the wild animal is abandoned, or immediately in the case of an injured wild animal, you can contact the following offices for help with finding a rehabilitator:
Contact the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association (NWRA) at 1-320-230-9920, or visit their Finding a Rehabilitator website.
Contact your state fish and wildlife office.
If you see an animal, such as a black bear or cougar, that is out of its normal territory or has some abnormality, contact your state fish and wildlife office.
If you find an abandoned or injured domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, call your local animal shelter or humane society. You can find their number online or in your local telephone directory.
