Animal Trapping
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Animal Control > Animal Trapping

Animal Control may provide citizens with a live trap specifically intended for injured or sick wildlife.  Traps may also be provided when deemed by this department that there is a public safety concern.  Animal Control will not issue traps for nuisance wildlife that appear to be healthy and exhibiting normal behavior.  Animal Control can assist citizens by providing basic education on alternative methods to deter certain animals.  We can also provide contact information for our local wildlife centers, contact information for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and/or private wildlife trappers.

Wildlife and domestic animals that our department may utilize a trap for

  • Raccoons
  • Opossums
  • Skunks
  • Domestic cats
  • Domestic dogs

If you need assistance, please contact Animal Control Dispatch at 941.833.5690 option 1
