Wildlife Removal and Relocation


(Cited from NJ DEP Web Site)

"As the administering agency for the wildlife resource in New Jersey, the Division of Fish and Wildlife has a responsibility to ensure that human activities relating to the movement and release of wildlife do not negatively affect human health and safety, agriculture and local wildlife populations. Authority to control releases is found in N.J.S.A. 23:4-63.3 and 64.4, and the N.J.A.C. 7:25 sub-chapters 4 and 10 which regulate the captivity of non-game and exotics and game birds and mammals, respectively."

The NJCACOA works closely with the Division of Fish and Wildlife in the process of wildlife removal and relocation. Homeowners are cautioned that wildlife trapping, removal of wildlife and relocation of wildlife should not be attempted. The homeowner or property owner should contact their local Animal Control Officer or proper health authority to obtain professional assistance when dealing with wildlife.

Detailed information on this process is available through the Division of Fish and Wildlife at the links listed below:
