Wild animals are considered to be indigenous to our area and generally are beyond the responsibility of the Village animal control program. However, the Winnetka Police Department will provide assistance on those occasions when wild animals enter the living space of a residence and pose a threat to persons. Wild animals in eaves, walls, under decks, in garages, etc. are not considered to be a threat and, according to Village policy, cannot be handled by the police. Contact a licensed animal control service for these situations.
