Wildlife Information

Berlin Animal Control can only respond to wildlife complaints if your pet has had contact with a wild animal. The animal may be tested for rabies at a UCONN Lab if there was contact and your pet will need a booster vaccine for rabies and/or a possible home quarantine. The fee for this testing is $60.

If exposure was to a human, Animal Control will have wildlife tested at Rocky Hill State Lab. The State of CT pays for this testing.

Berlin Animal Control will also respond for sick or injured wildlife and orphaned baby wildlife unable to survive without their mother.

Any wildlife complaints about a skunk, raccoon, possum, squirrel, swan, geese, coyote, bobcat or any other animal that is living under a shed or on your property must be referred to a Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator (NWCO) as mandated by the State of CT (Section 26-47). A list of NWCOs may be found in the Yellow Pages under Pest Control or from the State of CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) at 860-424-3011 or 860-424-3333 for Emergency after hours calls.
