Wildlife

Wildlife in Arcadia:
Part of Arcadia's beauty comes from our close proximity to the foothills, an area that is abundant with wildlife. It is important to be aware of how to interact with animals such as bears, coyotes, raccoons, mountain lions, skunks, snakes, and peacocks. Wildlife poses little threat to humans as they have a natural fear of people and are not comfortable in unnatural surroundings. However, with a significant water shortage, animals are getting braver about coming down into residential neighborhoods.  

If you are being threatened by a wild animal, call 911 or the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5151. The Arcadia Police Department works with the Department of Fish and Game in mutually supportive efforts to address local issues and problems.  For information about living with wildlife, please visit the California Department of Fish and Game website at wildlife.ca.gov/Keep-Me-Wild
