Protesting Wildlife & Residents
Blaine has its share of wildlife. Racoons and coyote are abundant. Cougars, bears, and even a moose have visited the city's residential neighborhoods. Police officers will respond to immediate safety problems involving domestic or wild animals.
Our most frequent wild animal calls involve baby seals "stranded" on our beaches. Please do not touch or molest marine mammals. Babies are almost never stranded. Their mothers do return, but will abandon the pup to die if it has been touched by humans.
Agents of the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife patrol the rural lands and waterways around Blaine for violations of state game laws, and assist Blaine officers with incidents involving non-domesticated animals.
