Managing Wildlife within the Borough of Stone Harbor

//Managing Wildlife within the Borough of Stone Harbor

Over the past year the Borough of Stone Harbor has encountered many animal nuisance complaints specifically involving skunks and raccoons.

Shore Animal Control has been working very hard to trap and/or maintain the wildlife population within the Borough however it has come to their attention that feeding of the feral cat population in our community may be one of the biggest reasons that the skunks and/or raccoons are thriving.  Chapter 147-20, Ordinance #1371 Prohibits feeding of wildlife and/or stray domestic animals.

Animal control has also provided a Homeowner checklist to deter skunks/raccoons and other wildlife at your property.   

There are State Regulations that must be adhered to when handling the trapping of wildlife in our community. Shore Animal Control is doing their best to educate homeowners on the best practices to deter the animals from establishing a nest on your property.

If you encounter a problem with wildlife which results in damage to your property please call our non-emergency number (609)368-2111 and ask them to contact Animal Control.

We appreciate your attention to the information provided and hope that these guidelines are helpful.
