City of Soledad - Frequently Asked Questions
No. Our staff does not enter private property for dead animal removal, nor can they attend to injured animals.
Nothing. Baby birds on the ground are not abandoned they are simply learning to fly and their mother knows where they are. Other animals like baby rabbits left in a nest are left alone for a reason. The mother doesn't visit the nest often during the day to avoid calling attention to it from predators. Never approach a injured adult, as they may be extremely dangerous. The best thing you can do for any wild animal is leave it where you find it.
