Corsicana has an abundance of wildlife from opossums, raccoons, skunks, squirrels, foxes, coyotes, snakes, to wild hogs. If you see wildlife that is threatening you or your property, contact Animal Services right way by calling 903-654-4929.

Never attempt to make contact with wildlife yourself.

Deter Animals

To deter such animals from your property you may try animal deterrent products available at local stores, placing moth balls under houses or buildings to deter animals such as skunks and opossums, and be sure to cover all trash cans or remove uneaten pet food to discourage such animals from remaining in the area.

Humane live traps are available to capture and remove animals such as raccoons, opossums, and skunks. If you see any of these animals during day light hours contact Animal Services right away, as this may be a possible concern for rabies.
