You should call the Biddeford Police Department at 207-282-5127 and make a lost animal report.
Next, you should call the Animal Welfare Society at 207-985-3244 to see if someone has brought it in.
If you live near a town line you should also call the animal control office or police department for that town. View a list of Animal Control Officers for assistance locating phone numbers.
First, try talking to the owner of the dog. Most of the time they don’t know that the dog comes over or that it bothers someone when it does.
If that doesn’t work or you feel uncomfortable with that, you can call Biddeford Animal Control at 207-282-5127, and we can speak to them about the issue.
Most likely, no. They are normally not a threat to people. Foxes and coyotes will come out during the day.
If you have food out for cats or other animals, then take it in. Keep your cats and small dogs inside or only let them out supervised. Foxes and coyotes could try to go after them.
However, if the animal is showing odd behavior such as “looking drunk” or being aggressive, then you should contact the Biddeford Police Department at 207-282-5127 or the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
