Small wildlife/animals such as raccoons, opossums, cats, squirrels, and skunks can be humanly trapped in a Live Animal Trap. The Shelter can provide Watauga residents with a trap for a $55.00 deposit that will be returned to you once you have trapped the wildlife/animal you are wanting removed from your property. You may also use your own private trap as long as it is humane and Animal Control will remove any animal you trap.
The City Of Watauga has temporarily suspended the live animal trapping program. No live traps will be loaned out or serviced at this time. Citizens may continue using their personally owned live traps, but the Citizen will be responsible for bringing the trapped animal to the animal shelter during normal business hours. Citizens must take care to ensure their traps are being used in a humane manner.
No trapping is permitted Friday evening through Sunday evening.
