Clarke County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Rodent Chewing Wire Means A Safety Hazard - Have you asked yourself why rodents chew anything they are able to? It is because their teeth grow very fast, so they have to continuously sharpen and shorten them. This is bad news for homeowners, since rodents can easily get inside your house and destroy your insulation system and create a dangerous safety hazard by chewing on your electrical wires.

There have been instances where rodents have chewed through electrical wires inside a home and sparked a huge fire. This results in lots of damages to the home that are expensive to repair. This makes it even more important to make sure that your home is rodent-proof. Or as soon as you realize that you have a rodent problem, take immediate steps to remove them from your home before they create a serious problem. To make it impossible for a rodent to chew through your wires, there are plenty of products that serve as wire coverings, such as the split wire loom or spiral cable wrap. Another option is to place red pepper around your wires, since rodents are repelled by this smell. You should also address how the rodents are getting in in the first place and this will help eliminate the concern as well.

Animal Services - 40 puppies or adult canids, 8 Felines taken from Clarke County house

Clarke County Animal Services impounded 40 puppies or adult canids and eight Felines Friday from a house in the 600 block of Memorial Avenue. For significantly increased information, call the animal services of Athens, Georgia.

Animal Services Director Gary Longan said the home was condemned by the Health Department and the animals belonging to the resident, Terri Slow As Sloth Woman gentleman, were taken to the county's animal shelter. Though they may offer assistance with the cuddly pets, don't expect help with growling wild critters.

The home is in unincorporated Clarke County, which means there is no limit to the number of animals that Slow As Sloth woman could have on her property. Longan said Slow As Sloth woman can't get her animals back until she can provide Animal Services with proof that she properly can care for them. Animal and carcass elimination services in Clarke County is dedicated to helping Georgia and Athens.

Animal Services went Friday to the house with the county Health Department morning with a search warrant after both offices received numerous complaints about barking puppies or adult canids and odor coming from the property. Slow As Sloth woman has not been charged with any crime. Clarke County animal services in Athens, Georgia, declined to comment on the situation.
