Contact the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division at 706-595-4211. While live animal traps can be purchased at local hardware stores, it is not recommended that you handle wildlife. Also, feeding wildlife is strongly discouraged.
Generally, you are legally liable for your pet’s actions, and you can be held responsible in a criminal case. As such, you could be subject to subsequent litigation and potential damages for your pet’s actions.
If your pet does bite someone, including yourself, that person needs to seek medical attention and you need to report it to our office immediately. If the animal is not current on its rabies vaccination, the animal in question would have to be impounded for observation. In some cases, the animal will have to be euthanized and then tested for rabies.
For any rabies-related encounter, please report your experience to the Greene County Animal Control office, not the Health Department.
