Animal Damage >> LA Animal Control

HOW CAN I PREVENT WILD ANIMALS FROM FORAGING FOR FOOD IN MY YARD? Skunks, raccoons, opossums, (and in some cases bears) are nocturnal or nighttime active animals and are often attracted to residential areas by the availability of food, water, and shelter. Removing or eliminating the availability of these LA Animal Control elements will often encourage these animals to leave. Some guidelines: Remove unused pet food and water bowls at night. Keep tight fitting lids on garbage cans or store garbage inside a secure area. Do not store trash in trash bags outdoors. Gardens should be harvested frequently and windfall fruit picked up. Keep pet access doors locked in the evening. Seal up entry holes in and under buildings, eaves, air ducts, and decks.

Slotted metal vent covers are preferable to screen wire in keeping wild animals from entering houses through foundation vents. Backyard decks have proven to be extremely attractive shelters for wild animals. Smaller animals may be excluded by using 1/4" grid screening or solid metal flashing. Trench around the perimeter of the deck a minimum of 12 inches deep, insert screening in trench and backfill. Attach top of screening to facade of deck with nails or fence post staples. This LA Animal Control technique may also be used along fence lines to prevent wild animals from entering yards or gardens. Before completing final seal on the last entry point on a building or deck, it is wise to make sure no animals are trapped inside.

Sprinkle flour around the entrance holes and check for tracks the following morning. If no tracks are evident for three consecutive nights, no animals are likely present.Wild animals causing lawn and turf damage may be encouraged to leave by controlling grub worms LA Animal Control and other subsoil insects. Chemicals to control these insects may be obtained at hardware or garden supply stores. Remember the safety of your pets when dealing with chemicals.Wild animals may be kept away from roof areas by trimming tree branches 10 feet from roof and by keeping climbing plants trimmed away from roof area and eaves.Food and water should never be intentionally left out for wild animals.

Excessive accumulation of animal waste on a pet owner's property creates unsanitary conditions that are offensive to neighbors and unsafe for people and pets. Pet owners who fail to pick up waste deposited by their pets while on walks also contribute to unsanitary conditions for others. Pet owners are required by LA Animal Control County ordinance to ensure their pets are not a nuisance to others. This includes regularly removing and disposing of pet waste from one's private property as well as removing and discarding their pet’s waste that has been deposited on others’ property as well as public property.Dogs Running at Large: County ordinance requires that dogs be restrained by a leash not exceeding six feet in length whenever they are on public property.

It is unlawful to allow dogs to run at large. Allowing dogs to run loose is very dangerous for them. Dogs at large may be hit by cars, attacked by other animals, or exposed to dangerous substances such as poisons. Unsterilized dogs at large will breed with other unsterilized dogs and create more unwanted pets in the community. Pet owners are encouraged to be responsible and ensure their pets are safely restricted to their personal property. Free Roaming Cats: While there is no leash law for cats, cat owners are still prohibited from allowing their cats to be nuisances to others. Sometimes, LA Animal Control free-roaming cats trespass onto other peoples' properties, using flower beds or sandboxes for litter boxes. This causes unsanitary conditions and is unlawful.

The County's policy regarding free roaming cats is shown here.Animal Noise Complaints: We understand that ongoing animal noises, such as barking dogs or crowing roosters, can be annoying and disturb the peace and enjoyment of your residence.
