Announcements & Events


Cleburne Animal Services along with USDA Texas Wildlife Services will be conducting buzzard abatement in the area of N. Buffalo between Heard and W. Willingham. Abatement is performed using pyrotechnics. 

 ***UPDATE - Abatement began 1/14/2019. You may see some birds come back to the area over the next few nights. That is completely expected and normal with this type of harassment. Animal Services will be out in the area over the next few nights to harass whatever birds show back up. Some are more stubborn than others but we expect to have this project completed by the weekend. While we are doing what we can to notify citizens in the area, please help us spread the word by sharing this post and talking to your neighbors if you live in the area. Also, if you MUST drive down N Buffalo while we are out there, please drive slowly and use caution. Remember to keep your pets inside or secured in the event that the noise scares them. We will be in the area from about 5 pm until about 6 pm. The noises sound like loud bottle rockets and bangs similar to a shotgun blast. They are NOT shotgun blasts. This harassment is non-lethal and only intended to scare the birds out of the area. ***

What you can expect:

  • Loud noises similar to fireworks – pops, bangs, whistles, etc.
  • Flashes of light similar to fireworks
  • Increased presence of Animal Control and Wildlife Services
  • Increased presence of Police and/or Fire Dept.
  • Birds (buzzards or other birds) and wildlife fleeing the area
  • Continued abatement between the hours of 3 – 7pm for 7 – 10 days

What you should do: 

  • Keep pets securely indoors – the noise may scare them
  • Stay indoors as much as possible during this time

What should NOT do:

  • Leave pets outside or unsecured
  • Interfere with Animal Services, Wildlife Services, or any other involved party
  • Attempt to assist with harassment
  • Stand outside and watch
