Default Long fermentation/Wild yeast

I brewed a California Common ten days ago and I'm still getting steady activity through the airl lock. About three or four bubbles per minute. It did take a couple days to get started. Would any of you suspect wild yeast at this point? I haven't opened the fermenter to see if there is any unwanted guys in there.

No, I wouldn't think that it's a contamination issue. It's just slow to finish up.

Thanks for the response. I guess I just get a little paranoid. Still a Noob. This is definetly the longest fermentation I've had to date. I guess it's due to the cooler temp. Thanks again.
