Residents with wild animals in chimneys, attics, window wells, crawl spaces or under decks, porches or stoops are advised to contact a licensed animal trapper or removal service. Nuisance wildlife that has taken up residence on a person’s property can be removed by a licensed wildlife trapper. This service is not provided by the Village of Lisle or DuPage County Animal Services. Please note that it is illegal for residents to trap wildlife. A link to a list of licensed animal trappers appears at the bottom of the page.
To report a sick, injured or trapped animal please call 9-1-1.
Lisle Community Service Officers can assist with sick or injured wildlife by:
Removing the sick or injured animal from residential property or public areas.
Removing an animal that has become trapped or entangled in a manner in which it cannot free itself (examples: trapped in a fence, entangled in plastic or netting).
