Wildlife & Nuisance Animals

Arden Hills is fortunate to have a topography that includes wooded areas, wetlands and lakes that are home to a variety of wildlife. Unfortunately, wildlife can cause damage to vegetation, leave behind waste, damage property and, in rare situations, become aggressive.

The city does not have jurisdiction over wildlife or nuisance animals. Taking (i.e., capturing, relocating or killing) nuisance animals is addressed in Minnesota State Statutes.
