Wildlife and Humane Removal

Killing wildlife for ending up in your home isn’t humane at all.

A few things to consider when relocating an animal is does the animal have babies? Make sure that you’re not orphaning young. If you want your home less appealing to wildlife you need to remove food, water and shelter so your home is less enticing. Make sure you have tight fitting lids on trash cans. Make sure you don’t have standing water. It’s even a good idea to make sure your house has no cracks or holes wildlife can sneak through. You will also find allot of different repellents for almost every animal I listed. I have researched these repellents to find they’re not that productive. If you choose to use a repellent it would benefit you more to spray daily if you’re using them outside, since the climate can affect the potency of the repellent. I would strongly discourage poison. Poison can be eaten by children and other pets resulting in death. If you have a rodent problem I would stay away from the traps that kill. Do you really want decaying bodies laying around your house?
Always remember after removing the wildlife to clean all feces and urine.

Glue traps are incredibly inhumane and also dangerous for humans. Glue traps leave animals stuck for a slow painful death. Reasons to humanely remove animals are because they all serve a purpose in the ecosystem and killing them throws that out of balance and can cause other wildlife to become over populated. If you have a rat or mouse problem and you kill a snake, your mouse problem will get worse. Think about it. These animals are looking for food and find it on your property, you destroy one making the other multiply. snakes eat mice and chickens. Bats and spiders eat insects. Raccoons and opossums are attracted to trash. squirrels like seeds and corn. Birds like seeds and worms. Hawkes like snakes and worms.

Wildlife can be entertaining to watch.

cute wildlifeI love the daily visits i get from the deer in my back field, watching the doe look after her baby while they eat and he plays, and the little hummingbird that comes right up to me now that she seems to know I’m not a threat. People seem to really enjoy seeing wildlife, otherwise we wouldn’t have zoos. I even enjoy taking my children bird watching and feeding the ducks and fish at the local marina. It can be scary and a nuisance when you have wildlife like raccoons and opossums moving in. My best friend started feeding the raccoon that was invading our dumpster. This turned out to be a very bad idea, since the raccoon started coming on the porch and right up to her. I even had a large raccoon at an old house that climbed into the shower wall.

I saw how the raccoon was getting under the house and tried to block it off with a brick. In the end we had someone come out who through mothballs under the house where the raccoon was entering. When I got up the next morning the raccoon had moved all the mothballs onto the porch. Next step was humane removal, the raccoon was caught in a trap and taken but not before it created some damage under our bathroom. People from all over the world visit wild life reserves like Yellowstone national park in Wyoming, which spans over three thousand miles. Vancouver island in Canada. Khao Sok national park in Thailand. Amazon rain forest which is half the rainforest in the world and the perfect place to experience wildlife in it’s natural habitat. Barbados has a wildlife reserve that’s different from your average zoo, they let you roam freely through the reserve and watch the animals. Kafue national park in Africa. This is one of Africa’s biggest national parks with parts still not ventured.

There was a story on the news about a storm blowing over a tree with a four foot beehive by a school, the students got to see the bees and hive while experts came and removed the hive and bees without injury. A woman had a bat in her living room so she called the police. the officer showed up and was swinging a tennis racket at the bat, luckily animal control showed up and safely removed the bat before the officer got him with the tennis racket. The weather channel had a story last week about a Florida woman who looked up from her phone to see a bear right in front of her, she took pictures and text her son who scared the bear away.

A 450 pound alligator was captured near a middle school, they say the gator was hanging around because people were feeding it. By Yellowstone national park a man watched a doe with two fawns, one of the fawns had an injured leg and was eventually left behind. This man took the doe in and nursed it back to health and him and his dog became very close to this little fawn. This man plans to reunite the fawn with it’s mother. There is a video on youtube of a goat with it’s leg stuck underwater and a pig swam out and saved this goat.

A woman who noticed a kitten on a busey intersection jumped off her bike and ran out to save the little feline.A baby fox had gotten tangled in a soccer net and was strangling wildlife aid rescuers cut him free. Michigan humane society rescued a puppy who had been stuck in a underground pipe all night. David Sheldrick wildlife trust rescued a baby elephant who fell down a well in Kenya and was greeted on the plain by two rescued baby ostriches. In 2015 fox 4 news aired a story about a great pyrenees who stood over his deceased dog friend on the side of the road in Dallas. This is such a sad story that would makes anyone cry and realise these animals have feelings the same as we do. A life taken is a life taken no matter the species, the Bible say’s it best “do unto others as you would want done unto you”. I would extend that to all of Gods creatures.
