El Paso County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Can A Rodent In Attic Get Out? - Rodents in the attic are a common problem for many households and unfortunately, can cause many thousands dollars' worth of damage before they are successfully eradicated. Rodents are capable of squeezing through the tiniest of spaces and their natural inquisitiveness means that they will try to get in anywhere and everywhere. Any gap that is not quite big enough for a rodent does not pose a problem - they will chew their way through causing more damage on the way.

Once you have rodents in the attic you will no doubt want to get them out. Rodents can cause tremendous amounts of damage to your electrical wiring, cabling, heating and air conditioning systems as well as the structure of the your building. Rodents also take a spray and spread approach with feces and urine - often urinating as they run. This means that when you do manage to eradicate your rodent problem you may well need to replace all of the insulation in your attic space and carry out a thorough deep clean of the whole area. Once you have ensured complete eradication of your rodent and waste, you must take careful steps to seal your home against further invasion. This may require some detective and observational work on your part.

Colorado Boy Mauled by Family Pit Bulls

Fourth-Grader Clings to Life After Backyard Attack. A 10-year-old boy is clinging to life after his family's three pit bulls mauled him Wednesday afternoon as he was trying to get into his home. For more information, call the animal services of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The dog attack victim was attacked when he tried to climb over a fence to get into his family's backyard. He was rushed to Children's Hospital in Denver, where he remains in critical condition. The dog attack victim was bitten on his head, face, throat, chest, arms and legs. Neighbors who fought away the dogs said one dog appeared to be gnawing on the boy's neck, as if they were eating him. El Paso County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Colorado wildlife problems.

The neighbors said the fourth-grader returned home from school just after 3 p.m. and couldn't get in the locked front door so he tried the side gate to the backyard. As he jumped over the wooden fence, they heard him scream, they said. Animal and carcass removal services in El Paso County is dedicated to helping Colorado and Colorado Springs.

"We looked over (the) fence and three of them were just literally attacking this little boy and he was calling (the dogs) by their names, but they wouldn't let go of him," said neighbor Trish Millard. One neighbor grabbed a bat, and two others, wielding large sticks, started yelling to distract the dogs, who had the boy in their jaws. Neighbor Mike Brushell said the dogs didn't let go until he and others got about 10 feet away. El Paso County animal services in El Paso, Colorado, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (719) 473-1741, and if you need wildlife removal service in El Paso County, call Animal Control Specialist LLC: 719-207-8090.
