As critters become active this spring, the NC Wildlife Helpline is a valuable resource for wildlife questions and encounters. The call center is a centralized hub for the public to talk to experienced biologists about problem wildlife, animal health concerns and human-wildlife interactions (HWI). Which species get the most complaint/damage calls? In 2021, the top four calls were about fox, bear, raccoon and deer. The Helpline is available Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 866-318-2401.
