Sick or Injured Wild Animal

Animal Control does not remove wildlife. If you see sick or injured wildlife, contact the Oconee County Sheriff's Dispatch to have the animal dispatched at 706-769-5665.


If you see a snake, do not attempt to kill it, leave it alone, and stay away. Venomous snakes may strike, and it is illegal to kill a non-venomous snake in Georgia. To view the snakes of Georgia, please visit the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory website.


Contact an animal removal company or the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) if you are having a problem with wildlife such as:
  • Coyotes
  • Foxes
  • Raccoons
  • Skunks
  • Snakes
  • Squirrels
Find the place to contact on our Animal Problems page.
