The City of Rowlett sits on Lake Ray Hubbard and has several creeks and streams feeding the lake. This, along with heavily wooded areas, provide a safe haven for all types of wildlife. Raccoons, opossums, coyotes, squirrels and snakes, to name just a few, live around the area. Unfortunately, with residents living so close to these areas, wildlife will wander into residential areas looking for a free meal. Trash cans, bird feeders, and pet food are a few things they are looking for. Rowlett Animal Services tries to provide helpful tips and humane traps for those occasions when wildlife disturb a resident's way of life. See below for a few options that can help residents coexist with the wildlife in the area.
