Humane wildlife removal companies, such as ourselves, take animals away from areas where they damage and invade personal property, and provide cleaning and repair services for the areas the animals inhabited. But what happens to the caught animals after we leave? This article will discuss the practices we and other humane wildlife removal services use to provide proper care and release for the animals we trap.
Safer Catching Methods
In order to prevent harm to the animals, we use safer traps that are meant to catch them without harm. This includes traps with one-way doors, which helps us more securely transport the animals off of your property.
Humane Capture Tools for Wildlife
When homeowners try to trap and/or relocate animals themselves, they can often do more harm than good. Additionally, homeowners could risk animal cruelty charges if they injure an animal while trying to get it off their property. Our wildlife removal specialists know how to properly catch, transport, and release wildlife. Through humane trapping methods and practices, we can prevent animal injury. Our team follows strict rules and regulations to ensure animal safety during our work.
Keeping Families Together
It is important for us to keep young animals with their mothers. This helps increase their survival rate after relocation. This is especially important for captures that occur soon after mating seasons. If animals are separated from their mothers too early, they may not be able to survive on their own.
Preventing the Spread of Disease
Wild animals can host a number of different diseases. As such, it is important to make sure that we are not introducing other diseases to other areas when relocating. Rabies testing can also allow us to help limit the disease from spreading further among wild animals.
Capturing The Right Animals
It is not uncommon for DIY trappers to catch the wrong animals. Unfortunately, many homeowners who try to handle their raccoon problem will end up with a skunk in their trap and will end up getting sprayed. A professional humane wildlife removal specialist will be more equipped to catch the right animal. We have experience with using different types of traps and bait to more successfully capture the target animal(s). And in the event that a different animal wanders into one of our traps, our specialists can properly handle those animals.
Releasing Trapped Wildlife Quickly
Live trapping can be a stressful experience for wild animals. As such, we need to work quickly to safely relocate animals to reduce harm. Reducing the time we hold the animals can also reduce the spread of diseases to other trapped animals as well.
Repairing Damage Caused by Wildlife
Wild animals can cause a lot of structural damage to the man-made structures they take shelter in. As such we provide cleaning and repair services to help restore your home and prevent other critters from taking up residence.
Proper Relocation Of Animals
Many people assume that wild animals caught in the city are relocated to rural areas or forests. However, many studies show that this can do more harm than good. Urban animals learn to grow up in urban areas. As such, they can have difficulty surviving in unpopulated areas, even if populations of that animal exist in that environment. Furthermore, relocation in that drastic of a change can create other issues for the animals already living there. This includes increased competition for resources, and potentially introducing new diseases to their environment. As such, we relocate animals near their original environment, in areas that are safe for release.
