EBCI Fisheries & Wildilfe Management has created a new guide to human-wildlife conflicts. You can access it on our website here.

If you or anyone else has been bitten, call 911 or local law enforcement/dispatch at (828) 359-4131. Immediately wash wounds/exposed areas with soap and clean running water for 15 minutes. Exposure should be explained to emergency services.

Otherwise, assess the situation and respond accordingly using the EBCI Human-Wildlife Conflicts Guide.
