This is the government animal control services operating in Fairfield County and sponsored by the city of Bridgeport. This agency typically deals with domestic animal issues involving dogs and cats. This includes things like dangerous dogs, stray cats, pet adoptions, etc. However, this agency will sometimes lend assistance with wildlife concerns. Call 203-576-7727 and ask if they will assist with your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, do not lie, but if applicable, state that the problem is a public health matter in Bridgeport, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
This is NOT a government agency. It is privately run, and operates on volunteer donations. This is a wildlife rehabber facility that deals strictly with wild animals. They may be able to help you with your wildlife problem, depending on the type of problem. The level of help might depend on their resources at the time. They will almost surely help in any case of an injured wild animal, or an orphaned baby animal, such as a baby squirrel or bird that fell out of a tree, or a baby opossum, etc. Please treat Bridgeport Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Connecticut, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Connecticut Fish & Wildlife Agency. Connecticut game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and yes, wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. But they also have resources that may apply to your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, state that the problem is a public health matter in Connecticut perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Bridgeport police department will sometimes help with wildlife problems! I've seen many cases of the cops chasing down an errant bat in your house or snake in your pool! To increase the chance of success, never lie to the police dispatcher, but if applicable, state that you feel your personal safety is at risk, or the problem is a public safety matter in Bridgeport, or a public health issue perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases. Success may come down to whether or not a police officer wants to show up to this call, or is available. It's not always consistent.

Bridgeport Wildlife Tip:
Male skunk scent - All skunks have an odor, and male skunk scent is often indistinguishable from female scent. It may be slightly more potent, but as far as a human is concerned, both animals just smell like skunk. A male skunk will be more inclined to mark around a home, so you may notice his presence quicker than you would a female. As you might have guessed, the smell associated with these animals is the primary reason why people don't tolerate them living around the home. If you've noticed a strong odor in your lawn, don't panic until you have noticed it consistently for a few days. Skunks will just pass through the yard if you live in a rural area. Once three days have passed without any abatement of odor, you should consider trapping and removing the animal. The key is to take care of the issue before the creature decides to live under your shed or under the patio. Some people want to use repellents to keep the skunks away, but these are largely ineffective and just a waste of money. Save yourself some time and money and purchase a cage trap.
