Wildlife is a common issue when living in more rural areas. We strongly advise to not leave food out for wildlife. Also, if you have outdoor companion animals we suggest making adjustments so that wildlife does not have access to their food. There are wildlife removal services that can trap the animals and remove them from your property, however, Animal Control Division is not sanctioned to remove nuisance animals within the City of Martinsville.
If the animal poses an immediate threat to you or your companion animals you can contact Animal Control during business hours or the contact the Police Department after hours and an officer will come to assist in the immediate threat.
