Members of the Campus Community -
This Fall, campus wildlife is especially prevalent, with a substantial increase in populations of both whitetail deer and javelina.
Seeing both on campus on a regular basis often leads members of the University community and visitors to consider our wildlife tame and approachable.
This is NOT the case. The animals remain wild and, if provoked, may respond.
Construction projects underway have temporarily cordoned off some favorite feeding areas and animals have been wandering more frequently into general campus areas. Mating cycles may also be in play, creating additional tensions among the populations.
Please avoid all contact with the animals and do not engage with them. Exercise caution on campus and if animals are gathered in your path, select an alternate route.
If you feel threatened by any animal population, contact University Police at [xxx]. Provide your location and request assistance.
Please exercise all relevant precautions so that all residents of our campus, both two and four-legged, can share this special environment.
