Wildlife concerns: Coyotes, rattlesnakes and other urban wildlife concerns

Urban Wildlife, including coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats, and rattlesnakes are handled by the Nevada Department of Wildlife. Animal Control will respond if the wild animal has become an immediate threat to public safety. Coyotes are common throughout Henderson and are seen most frequently at early evening, night and early morning hours cruising through various neighborhoods looking for food. Please keep your cats and small dogs indoors! Coyotes will usually leave by themselves unless they are challenged or cornered.
