I found a dead, wild animal on my property. What do I do?
It is not uncommon to occasionally find dead wildlife on your property. Wildlife dies for a variety of reasons and 1 dead animal should not cause too much concern. If you find dead wildlife on your property double-bag the animal and place it in the trash. If you find multiple dead animals, over a short period of time (24-48 hours) contact the Boulder County Public Health Department at 303-441-1564. There is a possibility the health department may want to test one or more of the animals. If you find a dead bat, contact Boulder County Health at 303-441-1564 or the police department at 303-441-4444.
