NUISANCE/PROBLEM WILDLIFE

The Town of Front Royal is surrounded by forest land and parks. This is the time of year that wildlife including bears are looking for food. If you are having an issue with skunks, groundhogs, opossums, deer and bears, etc., please contact the Wildlife Conflict Helpline at 1-855-571-9003. The Town does not have licensed personnel and/or trappers to assist you with wildlife. If you feel threatened by wildlife and/or have an emergency situation call 9-1-1. The VDGIF website offers the following simple guidelines to minimize interaction with wildlife on your property:


  • Remove bird feeders.
  • Secure garbage in a shed/garage or within a bear restraint container. The Town can retrofit your container to be bear-restraint. Please call Public Works if interested at (540)635-7819.
  • Pick up pet food.
  • Do not put meat scraps in the compost pile.
  • Pick up and remove ripe fruit from fruit trees and surrounding grounds.
  • Clean grills often.
  • Don’t store food, freezers, refrigerators, or trash on porches.
