Reminder to Residents about Wild Animals

Reminder to Citizens about Wild Animals

As the weather begins to warm, the number of calls to the police department and our city's animal control officers increases as encounters with wild animals such as coyotes become more frequent. Many areas of our city are still very rural and are natural habitats for such wild animals that we do not want to see roaming in our backyards; however, these animals are in their natural habitat and do not recognize property lines or residential neighborhoods. When they do wander into unsafe areas it's time for the professionals to take over.

The Frisco Police Department would like to encourage all citizens to not attempt to run off, shoot at, or trap any wild animal that they encounter. Instead, call Animal Control at 972.292.5303 or the police department at 972.292.6010 if after hours and have a Frisco animal control officer or police officer respond to handle the situation. Also, please remember that Frisco city ordinance prohibits discharging a firearm within the city limits. Please do not shoot any weapons in an attempt to scare off wild animals that you may encounter. 

We appreciate your help in this matter and hope that you enjoy spring and the warm weather it brings! Frisco Police Department Public Information Office.
