Reporting Wildlife

When a wildlife injury call is received, Rangers may investigate as time allows or determine over the phone if the animal should be left alone to let nature take its course. If the injury is minor for a small mammal or bird, our advice may also be to take it to a licensed rehabilitator.

The Rangers use the same policy as Colorado Parks and Wildlife. If a deer/elk is injured but can still feed and walk on its own, then we let nature take its course. However, if the deer/elk is injured to the point it cannot feed or walk on its own, listing to one side, head/ears lowered, then Rangers (if on duty) will respond to euthanize the animal or direct the caller to contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

PARK RANGERS (303-979-1876, ext. 170) will only handle deer/elk. As time allows, a report of an injured or sick deer will be reviewed and any dead deer will be removed as soon as possible depending on the time of day and availability of a Park Ranger on duty. Many factors play into the response time including where the Ranger is on duty, trails, proximity to a truck, time of day, etc.

JEFFERSON COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL (303-271-5070) will remove any dead animals and advise on any other injured animals, for example, rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, etc. Park Rangers keep a call log when reports come in referencing sightings and or concerns about animals in the open space and private property. The log assists the Rangers in detecting a pattern to behavior or injured activity of a certain animal and can report that information to follow-up calls by staff, Colorado Wildlife Officers or Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association members.

AFTER-HOURS ISSUES: If you have an emergency, dial 911. If you need to report illegal activity, please call Jefferson County Sheriff Dispatch at 303-277-0211. If you have a wildlife concern, please call Colorado Parks and Wildlife at 303-291-7227. If after hours for wildlife, please call Colorado State Patrol at 303-239-4501, and they will contact the on-call Parks and Wildlife Officer.
