Wildlife, Hunting and Pets

Educate yourself about living in the wild. Nature can provide you with some wonderful neighbors and Lake Rockport Estates enjoys a diverse wildlife population. However, even harmless animals like deer can cross the roads unexpectedly and cause an accident. Rural development encroaches on the traditional habitat of deer, elk, moose, bobcats, mountain lions, foxes, bears, and other animals. They can be dangerous and you need to know how to deal with them.

Summit County prohibits any type of hunting within the subdivision of Lake Rockport Estates. It is also illegal to discharge any firearm of any type within the subdivision.

Moving to the mountain is not a license to let dogs roam. Even gentle beloved family dogs can become nuisances, predators, or prey to wild animals. Dogs found attacking or harassing wildlife can be impounded or even killed under Summit County ordinance. Summit County and Lake Rockport Estates requires that all dogs be kept on a leash or confined to the property owner’s property.

For issues with dogs, please contact Animal Control at 435.615.3985. For more information about Animal Control Laws, visit: https://www.summitcounty.org/946/Animal-Control
