Indigenous Wildlife: Coexisting and Deterrent Tips
The Village of Lombard does not have an animal control department. Lombard Police Officers are not licensed, trained, or legally allowed to intervene with a wild animal population, per restrictions set in place by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Coexisting with indigenous wildlife (coyotes, raccoons, skunks, foxes, etc.) presents challenges, however since these animals are native to the area, trapping is illegal without a license.
You can deter wildlife from your property by using sight, sound, and smell. Learn more at villageoflombard.org/wildanimals.
