Q. Does Weld County pick up wildlife?
A. Our officers have limited resources available to deal with wildlife. Sick/Injured wildlife calls are handled on a case by case basis. If the animal can get around (walk, fly, swim, etc.) on its own then it should be left alone. If the animal is unable to move or has a life threatening injury an officer may respond to pick up the animal depending on size and animal type. If you have general questions or problem wildlife issues you should contact the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife at 303-297-1192. If you have a wildlife emergency you should contact the Colorado State Patrol at 303-239-4500. For more wildlife related issues or questions please visit http://cpw.state.co.us/
