Cheyenne Animal Control has had an increase in calls for animals caught in window wells

(Cheyenne Animal Control)

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Animal control has released a statement about an increase in calls for baby animals that have gotten caught, and sometimes injured, in window wells.

They advise residents to cover their window wells in order to prevent animals from falling in.

If an animal does get caught, or if they are found in your home, call animal control at 307-637-6206. Do not interact with the animal.

An Animal Control officer can assess the situation, as some animals may be past their weaning stage and are able to survive on their own if they are not injured.
