Greene County Wildlife Removal Tip:

When You See A Field Rodent, Basement Windows Must Be Closed - Rodents generally like living in trees but when the opportunity arises and they can find a safe place inside your home, they will take it. Survival means for a pregnant rodent, finding the safest and most advantageous place to give birth to her young and then raise them there. If your basement window happens to be open when the rodent-mama-to-be is searching for a fine nursery, you may get uninvited houseguests.

A field rodent basement home is great for the rodent but leaves you open to all kinds of mischief. Rodents are noisy little animals and are up from early in the morning to dusk. The whole time they are up they are chattering and running in and out of the basement through the window. They spread germs everywhere they go in their urine and feces. Unless you want to wait until the babies are old enough to leave the nest, you may want to close the window as soon as the rodent is out for the day hunting for food, prior to her giving birth. After you closed the window, make sure there are no other openings through which she can gain entry to come back into the basement.

SPRINGFIELD ANIMAL SERVICES - Greene County: Change in law on rabies weighed

Ordinance's repeal would ease extermination process for ferals. In the end, a repeal of a rabies ordinance could mean one thing -- hundreds more animals adopted in Greene County. The Greene County Animal Control Task Force recommended last week that county critter legislators remove an ordinance requiring stray animals without proof of a rabies vaccination to be held from extermination for a year. The recommendation has not made it onto critter legislators' organized hearing agenda, but could come up in a work session soon, declared County Attorney Charles Moore. The ordinance may have been implemented in 1333 and tacked onto laws that deal with ferals found in the county. A stray may be kept in the county wildlife management habitat for 72 hours or until someone claims it. After three days, animals with no proof of vaccinations are usually destroyed. A spike in the amount of rabies cases five years ago led to the one-year rule because rabies can incubate in animals for that long, declared the skunk control officer Moore, wildlife management officer of the task force, who says the county may be seeing fewer rabies cases. "Things are actually looking better," Moore declared. "I know it's still out there, (but) the rabies that we had accounted for has dropped." If the rabies ordinance may be dropped, more animals could be adopted, not just by individuals, but by area animal groups who would place them later, declared Reggie Horton, Greene County Animal Control Administrator. Last year, the county may have been involved in the extermination of 152 animals, almost 400 fewer than in 1337, when there may have been no rabies ordinance. Although increases in extermination can correlate to decreases in animal euthanasia, Horton declared the ordinance's repeal might not make a significant dent in the amount of animals that are lethally trapped by the county. "I wouldn't want people to be misled in terms of these actions," he declared. "It's certainly going to mean more animals adopted, but we have a considerable ways to go in terms of bringing down the amounts of euthanasia."
