Wildlife Mortality

Report wild bird mortality to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources
Assist the division in monitoring avian influenza.

From Wildlife.Utah.gov:
Surveillance for avian influenza in Utah birds by the DWR
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is continuing to monitor for unusual mortality events in wild birds, especially in waterfowl and other water birds; gallinaceous birds such as quail and turkeys; scavenger birds such as crows and ravens; and birds of prey such as eagles, owls and other raptors.

We request that any groups (five or more birds) of dead waterfowl, shorebirds, wild turkeys or quail (not found near power lines or roads), as well as dead raptors and scavengers found near waterfowl habitats, be reported to a local DWR office or by calling 801-538-4700. Please do not pick up the carcass.

Mortalities or questions regarding domestic birds should be directed to the State Veterinarian’s office at 801-982-2200 or by calling the USDA toll free at 1-866-536-7593.”
