The Closed Section of the Trail at Bacchus Park is Re-opening
After a week of observation, and multiple conversations with wildlife conservation partners, Frisco Animal Services has asked the city's Parks and Recreation Department to re-open the portion of the trail at Bacchus Park previously closed. However, Animal Services would like to remind all our residents that wildlife are part of the city, and precautions should be taken when out walking (especially with pets).
Restrain your pets -Always walk dogs on a leash and do not allow cats to roam free outdoors. In general, do not leave pets unattended outdoors.
Make noise if you see wildlife -Yell or clap loudly to scare wildlife away; carry something with you to make noise.
Do not feed coyotes or the animals they prey upon -Feeding wildlife, including leaving food bowls outside for your own pets, may attract coyotes, as well as the animals that they prey upon.
Teach children about natural wildlife -Let them know that wildlife lives in the area and that they should leave wildlife alone.
Immediately report sightings of wildlife approaching humans or that appear to be injured
Contact Frisco Animal Services at 972-292-6010. Report healthy wildlife to the DFW Wildlife Coalition Hotline: 972- 234-WILD.
