Dead Animal Pick-Up
To report a dangerous animal at-large or request dead animal pick-up in the City of Beverly Hills and on public property only, please phone the City of Beverly Hills directly at (310) 285-PETS (7387). If you have a dead animal on private property you may contact an independent licensed animal trapper or extermination company for service or you may phone the PETS number for a referral.
The Code Enforcement Division of the City of Beverly Hills handles all excessive domestic animal noise (e.g., dog barking), vicious dogs, and wild animal complaints. To submit an online complaint use our online service at Ask Bev! Any animal-related request will be routed to us.
Beverly Hills and environs are home to a myriad of critters, large and small: coyotes, mountain lions, opossums, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, migrating fowl…the list goes on and on.
The first line of defense is property maintenance: well maintained fences and perimeter walls, as well as intact screens on sub-floor and roof vents, go a long way to keeping animals out of your building. To deter them from the property ensure that the trash bin area is maintained clean, that there is no trash left or put outside the bins, and that the bins are kept tightly closed at all times.
The second line of defense is to not feed pets outside or feed wildlife at any time; this includes birds, squirrels, etc. Feeding pets outside attracts wildlife..to your pet, not to their food...so pets should be fed indoors and no pet food should be left outside. The feeding of urban wildlife is prohibited for this very reason; the feeding attracts the wildlife that preys on the animal you feed. So your urban wildlife friend, as well as your pet, quickly become “sitting ducks."
Web searches are an excellent resource if you are interested in learning more about the habits and lifestyle of wildlife. The City of Los Angeles web page offers extensive information pertinent to our region and is a good starting point:
