Animal Make Safe

Occasionally wild animals get into buildings by mistake. The purpose of the Animal Make Safe program is to safely and humanely respond to certain live animal incidents in campus buildings by capture and removal or live trapping. Our staff is trained to respond to these incidents 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Please see Animal Problems — Who to call for more information.

If you are aware of a situation that needs our attention please call our 24-hour hotline, 471-BATS.
