We’ve had a number of recent posts on Nextdoor about wildlife encounters in the neighborhood – some scary, some delightful. It’s part of the reason we love the forrest around us; those chance encounters with elk, deer, wild horses, birds and critters of all types. Snakes, bears, mountain lions and bobcats though are frightening and potentially dangerous.
Arizona Game & Fish has an excellent section of their Web site about ‘living with wildlife’ here. There are links with information about all types of animals – even printable PDF reference brochures. It’s a really great resource to lean more about them and what to do if and when you may encounter them in the neighborhood or in the forest.
If you have questions or need additional information, reach out to their local office here:
