In Forest Falls we live in lion, bear, raccoon and
coyote country and there is a possibility that you may
encounter one of these animals. The following
precautions will help us live in harmony with the
wildlife and possibly prevent a confrontation:
Children should not play outdoors alone and should
always come inside before dusk. Most of our
dangerous animals come out at night, but they are
seen during the day occasionally.

Never approach a bear or it's cubs, a lion kill or a
Make sure pets and pet food are inside at night.
A pet enclosure may be used if completely enclosed.

cats have very short life expectancies in Forest
Never feed wild animals, especially deer and
raccoons, or encourage them to come into your yard.
Deer are the mountain lion's primary prey.
Raccoons can be very dangerous animals also.
Never approach one. They have very sharp claws
that can seriously injure you or your pets.
