The trapping of wild animals is regulated by State law. Before setting any trap(s) for wild animals citizens should consult the local office of the State Department of Fish & Game.
If any wild animals are inadvertently trapped, they may be released at or within a two mile radius of the location where they were trapped.
The Animal Control Officer is available to advise you on ways to address nuisance cat issues in and around your home or neighborhood which may eliminate the need for trapping. The Police Department encourages you to discuss these options with the Animal Control Officer before setting traps.”
Cats that are captured in traps must be treated humanely and delivered to the animal shelter or the La Mesa Animal Control Officer. The Animal Control Officer will provide you with specific information on where you may take cats that have been trapped.
